Meet our Guest Artist For October; Diane Bove

This month Gecko Galz is extreamly pleased to have as our guest artist an amazingly talented paper artist Diane Bove. Without further ado let her tell you a bit about herself!

I am excited to share my passion for paper
crafting with you. I think we all have so much
creativity built up and hiding in each of us, we
just don’t know how to access it. It’s intoxicating
to feel so proud of what you just made, and the
pleasure you get from giving it to someone is
amazing. I am an excellent organizer, I love to
help people through example and
encouragement, and I love to create beautiful
handmade cards. It is so empowering to take
paper, digital stamps, dies and embellishments
to create beautiful handmade cards. I have a
background in sales and marketing. I live in
Michigan with my wonderful husband and I have
two adult children, who inspire, encourage and
indulge me in everything I do. Along with card
making, I am passionate about cooking. I love to
experiment and make up new recipes, which my
family loves to taste test. I collect antique
cookbooks and I love to read through them to
see how women lived at that time in history. I
have participated in card clubs and card swaps.
