roc nicholas rubber stamp guest designer



I'm so happy to have you meet Laura Liddell. Laura is one of this year's guest designer for the roc nicholas rubber stamp team. She lives with her partner, John, and her two daughters who are 17 and 19, in the Forest of Dean located in Gloucestershire, in the United Kingdom. Laura loves the area she lives in because it is situated on the borders of Herefordshire and Wales, and nestled between two salmon rivers, the River Severn and the River Wye.

 Laura says she has always been creative and before her children were born she designed knitwear which was exported mainly to America and Japan. She credits her inspiration for her designs to the landscapes around her, taking colors from the changing seasons and countryside around her.

Several years ago Laura found herself in a position of not working. Due to her positive attitude and joy for life she became proactive and put her free time to learning many new things. She is currently starting a new business which is very time consuming. Laura confesses that she hasn't had the time to be as active in her studio as much as she would like due to the time she spends creating her new business.

She professes that she misses getting inky and messy, so as Laura says, "It was a real treat to be a guest designer for Roc this month as it made me make time for this creativity that I love. Thank you Roc for giving me this opportunity. I so enjoyed myself."

As you can see, Laura's approach to art using my rubber stamps is colorful, happy and clever.   You can find out more about Laura on her blog.  You can find out more about my stamp line at stampotique. com
