A.K.A. Trena in Naperville ...I am a woman of Faith, a wife & mother, an artist, a business owner, a manager, a change agent and an encourager. I have a passion for people and a passion for color. I have always been a doodler and have loved vivid colors.
My friend Marge introduced me to the art of stamping in 2002 and I've been hooked ever since! In 2004, I started teaching workshops in homes and at various events. I have taught many workshops in the Chicago land area and in Southern Michigan. I received my Copic Marker Basic Certification in 2008 and Intermediate Certification in 2010. I received my certification in Tombow Marker Techniques in 2011. I am currently a lead Designer on the Crafter's Companion Design Team and a member of the Art Impressions Design Team.
I am married to a wonderful man and we have two beautiful, bright children. I work in an office weekdays, supporting an awesome team of engineers who develop Methods & Procedures for telephone networks and colors whenever I have a moment!
