Introducing Trish...

And last, but by no means least, we're very proud to say we have Trish Latimer joining us.

My name is Trish Latimer, and I live in Blackpool. I'm a full time mixed media designer/teacher/writer (in between looking after my 4 children!)

My passion is paint! Whilst I enjoy inks of all kinds, paint is my 'go to' method of creating both simple and complex layered backgrounds. I love to add stamped images and my own embellishments to my work too, plenty that adds the complexity and detail I love to create. I enjoy working with lots of different mediums too, I probably use gesso or moulding paste on almost every project I think!!

I'm probably a bit unusual in that as well as being passionate about the messy mixed media side of craft, I also love jewellery making! I do love mixed media jewellery, but am just as happy with wire work techniques, as well as stringing and linking.

If I had to describe my style in a few words, I think it would be Messy, Quirky, and Colourful!
Colour features very heavily in both my messy crafty stuff and my jewellery, I just love coming up with vibrant and unusual combinations. Quirky is another word I use to describe my creations, anything just that little bit unusual or off the wall appeals to me, I'm DEFINITELY not a follow the crowd type crafter!
I’ve been teaching all kinds of papercrafts, jewellery making techniques and the messy painty stuff for nearly ten years now, and I love it. Sharing ideas and giving my students that extra little ‘push’ they may need to get really free and creative makes me smile every time!

I currently write regularly for Craft Stamper and Beads And Beyond Magazines, and recently released a DVD called ‘Create With Paint’.

I can’t wait to start sharing lots of projects with you all!

Love, Trish xxxxx
