She lives in England and has been drawing and doodling since childhood. Although school and work slowed her participation in favorite handwork over the years, when her four year old daughter was born Gemma found herself with a revived interest in crafts such as knitting and cross stitch.

Just last year Gemma began paper cutting in earnest. She was captivated by the process and appreciated advice received from others on Facebook. It wasn't until she bought a package of ink pens and resumed her personal style of doodling that she was able to fall into a rhythm with the art. Gemma especially enjoys cutting designs that are based on her own original sketches.
