Speedy Fox Featured Designer - Sue W





I am self-taught, although I have taken many classes from some of my favorite artists. I have been teaching rubber stamping around my state for over 15 years and love it. I demo at rubber stamp conventions in my tri-state area whenever possible. At a rubber stamp convention years ago, I was asked to send in a sample for publication while demoing at a convention in New Jersey. I have since had my work published in Vamp Stamp News, The Stamper's Sampler, Somerset Gallery, The Rubber Stamper and Scrap & Stamp Art. 

As of April 2012 I joined the SR design team of Mark’s Finest Papers.  I was on the Creative Crew for the stamp company Lasting Impressions with Panache from June 2005 to 2008 and the design team for Faerie Song Art Stamps in May 2008 to February 2012.  Sunday International is another design team I have had the privilege to be associated. 

My passion right now is creating unique postcards and hand stamped greeting cards.   Other interests are carving my own stamps, bookmaking, beading and discovering new techniques to share.

On a personal note I'm married and live in Connecticut. My art is inspired by the mood I happen to be in at that moment.  When it comes to art I like to say, “what is old is new again! And I like to tell my students, “there are no mistakes in rubber stamping just happy accidents!”.

You can view Sue's latest tutorial, Faux Tearing, here on SpeedyTV or visit her blog here for more inspiration.
