Gem is a paper artist living in Dorset England, with her husband Dom, son Leo, and Busta the dog. Living in Dorset means spectacular scenery and lots of walks - cliff tops, heathland, beaches, farmland, and woodlands. She loves them all and can always be found snapping pictures of flower and foliage finds.
She describes herself as a reader, a book-worm since a young girl. She still reads every day and feels lost without a good book!
As a maker, Gem is a colour fiend! Colour is her weakness, all shades, all saturations, all tones. When asked to pick a favourite? She can't! “Don't make me, it's too difficult, but what I can and love to do is put together colour palettes and schemes."
When Gem entered the world of paper art she was looking for a meaningful gift that would last, that could be lovingly created for a friend's special day.
“Little did I know where this would lead me. Four years later and here I am: Absolutely in love with all things botanical.”
