Meet the Designers!



Meet the Arty Divas Design Team:




My name is Alex and I’m from Melbourne. I also go by PinkCraftyMama!  I live with my Hubby of 19 years, am cautiously navigating the field of raising a teenage boy and wrangling two crazy cats.
I love creating all-the-things!  Scrapbooking is my passion since the storytelling and consequently memory keeping aspect is very close to my heart..  I also love cardmaking and teach the odd class locally.  Besides papercrafting, I enjoy quilting, baking and all things Jane Austen.




Hello, my name is Claudia Martins, I am Brazilian, married and I have 2 daughters and 1 dog, which is my youngest son ... I am an artisan for over 12 years, I work with various handicrafts and now, due to a health problem and by order of my doctor, I started coloring. It became my great passion. At first it was just a hobby, but over time, this hobby ended up mixing with my crafts and I started mixing my crafts and colored pencils, turning my crafts and my hobby into pieces to make and sell. I'm loving the work that I've been creating since I discovered colored pencils and digital images.
Coloring helps me with my health, makes me forget the world and the problems ... hahaha. In addition to coloring and doing my craft work, I also went back to school and I am in a letter universi

ty (Portuguese / English) and I hope to graduate by the end of this year.




Hello! my name is Zowie, I found my love of creating art around Eleven years ago, first starting with creating simple scrapbook layouts and then for the last few years working with mixed media and collage. I also love vintage and shabby chic styles of crafting, featuring a lot of old photographs in my artwork. 






I'm a paper crafter with an addiction for stamps, digi stamps, patterned papers and Promarkers! Crafting is my relaxation after a day at work and has also given me the opportunity to meet lots of friends.  I work in a care home full time as an Activities Coordinator - depending on the day you might find me singing, calling bingo, playing dominoes or crafting!










Hi my name is Sharon Smith. I am a happily married stay at home mom to a 20 year old, 10 year old and 4 fur babies. I live in Michigan USA but am originally from the UK, we moved here 6 years ago. Now that my kids are at school I spend most of my spare time during school hours stamping, coloring, card making or doing any number of crafts in my craft room with my fur babies keeping my feet warm. If I am not crafting I am either reading, spending time with my family or in the gym.
