Beginner Designers

Jowilna Nolte 

I started my paper journey officially in about 2000 as a shop assistant in a specialty paper store in Sandton, Johannesburg, South Africa. Whilst I have been playing with paper and creating my own masterpieces at home for friends and family since the age of 10, the shop environment added the vast knowledge of handmade and imported paper as well as the common commercial types of paper. I also started teaching card making, stamping and altered art in-store at the time.

I am an explorer of all things mixed media, designer, and instructor who fell in love with rubber stamping about 20 years ago. I love the versatility of rubber stamps and feature their use in mixed media art, card making, art journaling as well as other papercrafts. I love to try new techniques and mediums and am always keeping an eye out for something different.
