Kasia My name is Kasia Avery (aka czekoczyna) and I am a Polish girl who moved to Wales following her heart. You can't pigeon hole me because of my explorative nature, but I'm enjoying my creative journey creating art journals and mixed-media collages, teaching classes all over the world, designing stencils for The Crafters Workshop, stamps for The Scrapbook Diaries and working at Artist Trading Post. I worked with Prima Marketing (as a design team member and later as an educator), Blue Fern Studios, Faber-Castell, 7 Dots Studio, The Scrapbook Diaries, Mixed Media Place and my works have been published many times in such magazines as Somerset Memories, Art Journaling (including the current issue Summer 2015), Somerset Life, Somerset Apprentice, Paper Haus, Die Scrapperin, Histoires De Pages. I’m searching for an inspiration everywhere and everyday – in music, nature, old books, bad weather, dreams … I love summer, meadows and beautiful notebooks.
Jamie My name is Jamie Avery, I grew up in a home where both my parents were painting, so I have always loved to be creative. My biggest creative passion is photography, but I also like to paint with acrylics and watercolours, draw with pencils, and am very excited to experiment in mixed media techniques. I started life in retail, but later set up a Graphic, Animation, Video and Web-design business with my brother. We filmed for TV, created animations for many blue chip companies, and won awards for web design. This I did for many years before the retail bug bit me again, and combining the skills I had learnt over the last few years, with my love of creativity, I opened an online retail shop, Artist Trading Post, a retailer specializing in Mixed Media and Art Journaling products, which I have run successfully since 2008. I love the technical aspect of how products work with each other and why, and helping people to experiment and be brave.
