DoveArt-istic Design Team

I’m Faye, and I’m addicted to Copics (and choklit). Wife, Mum, Self-Confessed, Obsessive Colourist, and E-mail/ Facebook/ Blog Stalker. I'm a Copic Regional Instructor for the UK, and I regularly contribute at Making Cards Magazine. How do I fit all that into a day? Simples. I run on Fairy Dust. Yep, sense of humour features in there too. When I’m not doing any, or all of the above, (and sometimes when I am doing them) you’ll more than likely find me day dreaming. My style is very clean and simple. But why clean and simple? I like to give the image space to be the image. My eye for colour, patterns and design is not good. I can spend hours moving papers, sentiments and embellishments around, before getting irritated (ok, you can add that to my list of traits.) and giving up. So, minimal works best for me. You’ll find I doodle a lot too. In fact, people often recognise me for it.
So, to recap. Faye. Regional Copic Instructor. Obsessive choklit munching doodler. Impatient daydreamer with wacky sense of humour. Belongs to Very Understanding Hubby and Child. Often spotted lurking near biscuit barrel, Copic in one hand, some form of electronic gadget in the other...

Hello everyone!  My name is Cassandra and I live in Scottsdale, Arizona.  I work as a psychotherapist in private practice with my wonderful husband Dan.  We have been together since 1997 and I must say that I am incredibly lucky to have an amazing husband that understands my need for crafting and supports me in every way!

I started crafting way back in 1989, when my college roommate introduced me to the wonderful world of stamping.  Then in 1995, I learned all about scrapbooking after meeting a Creative Memories consultant.  I purchased my very first Cricut in 2005 and then added a Silhouette Cameo to my collection in 2012.  Also in 2012, I started “collecting” Copic Markers.  It wasn’t until I met the super talented Jennifer Dove in 2013 that I figured out what “to do” with all of these beautiful markers.  And now I think it’s safe to say ~ I’m completely addicted!  
I started my blog on February 12, 2011 as a way to enter crafting contests and challenges. Never in a million years would I have imagined that I would meet so many wonderful, creative and talented people from all across the country and even around the world.  

I am so excited to be joining the DoveArt Designs ~ Design Team.  And although I still consider myself somewhat of a Copic “newbie”, I hope I can inspire you to pick up those markers and get creative.  If I can do it, so can YOU!  Happy coloring everyone. 

I live in country Victoria, Australia with my husband and two of our three daughters the eldest is living in the city and going to Uni. I have been making cards and scrapbooking for about 12yrs and discovered Copic's and colouring in 2012 and after a very slow start it has now become an obsession.

I live in Arizona with my husband and we have two amazing daughters and a grandson who is our heart and soul!  Since my childhood I have loved paper arts and all things crafty and have been stamping for more than 24 years.  My style is very eclectic as I love clean and simple to vintage and grungy.  In 2006 my amazing and supportive husband fulfilled my dream of owning my own rubber stamp store and I proudly and lovingly owned it for 7 years.  I find joy in inspiring others to believe in their inner artist and to join me on this creative journey.

I am blessed and honored to be joining the Dove Arts Design Team.

BIO  I've lived in NW Arkansas most of my life. I have 3 amazing, very energetic, little boys and a darling hubby who tries very hard to understand my crafting. 
I have been so fortunate to have been surrounded by the "best" early on in my coloring journey; Jennifer included. She has played such a huge part in shaping the artist I am today. 
I am honored to be a part of her team. I feel as though I'm living a fairytale come true. 

I am a mother to two grown boys and am an awesome wife (to one husband).  My passion is to color and create and make people laugh.  I have been a crafter for many years and currently teach Copics.  I recently moved from Arizona to New York where I continue to follow my dreams.  Jennifer is Awesome! ha ha

"Hello! I'm French and mum to two boys aged 7 and 14. In the daytime I teach English to teenagers... and at night, I colour!!! Colouring is a true addiction and the perfect way to relax for me! I often use Copics which are my very first love and which I started using about 5 years ago, but I also love my pencils, watercolours and acrylics more recently. I enjoy colouring cute characters but also love realistic images and DoveArt Studio stamps are THE stamps to fulfill my need for realism!
Thank you Jennifer for having me on your team!"

  1. Hey, y'all. I loved reading your bios. What a fun adventure for all of you and of course for us as we'll get to see what you create and we can learn from y'all. Please pass the fairy dust.
