Meet The Design Team!

Meet the Arty Divas Design Team:

Zowie Dixon (Blog owner)

Hello! my name is Zowie, I found my love of creating art around Twelve 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. 

Helen Nile (DT Coordinator)

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!

I have been a crafter for 30 plus years. Lately I'm obsessed with paper crafts while doing my altered art mixed media. I am like a mad scientist in the lab... always creating new art! I make one of a kind creations. My favorite themes are surreal, nature, goth and steampunk. 

My name is Cindy van Oorschot I have been into crafts as long as I can remember. I started out doing needle crafts and then when I went to Holland and met my future sister in-law  I was introduced to paper crafts and been doing it ever since. That was back in 1998. I love to inspire others and am excited to be joining Arty Divas Design team.

Hello, I'm Jayne Carpenter a graphic design and marketing professional by trade but in my spare time I love to craft and have done since I was a little girl. I love drawing, cross stitch, card making and much more. 

I've been in the craft industry since 2013 where I've was lucky to have my own online craft company where I designed and sold my own stamp range for just over 5 years which included 12 months on Hochanda TV - an achievement that I will treasure. 

I now enjoy cardmaking for fun, taking part in facebook challenges as well as helping other craft companies when I can, so naturally I jumped at the chance and I am thrilled to be working with Arty Diva Creations design team.

Hello! My name is Michelle Bell (I know, has a nice ring to it!). I am Canadian, living in beautiful British Columbia. I’m married and proud mama to two boys, one has left the nest and my youngest just graduated from high school. We have two cats, Nibs and Boo and they keep our household alive with entertainment. I’m a lifelong crafter of one thing or another and was introduced to Copic markers in 2011 and now cardmaking is my main passion. Creating is my Zen and I love hiding away in my craft room with my music and supplies.

My papercrafting hobby started about 14 years ago and I had no idea that there were so many art mediums at our fingertips.   I love to colour and my projects vary between clean and simple to colour pop and layers

I am a lover of all things paper crafting.  I have been sharing and teaching stamping classes since 1999.  I live in Aurora, IL.. I’m a mom to 2 daughters Allison & Jaime and 2 sons Aaron & Logan, a German Shepherd Abby and a Beagle puppy Bentley.  A grandma to 3 granddaughters Keely, Baylee, Harlow and 1 grandson Eli.  I’m married to my best friend and the most wonderful man David, who is fully supportive and patient with my craftiness.
