My name is Svetlana. I am originally from Russia but for the past 14 years I call South Africa my home. Since my childhood I was always painting, drawing and making something. I tried many creative hobbies in the past but since I discovered scrapbooking 12 years ago, it really captivated me and I never looked back ever since. I was privileged to design for various international teams and my work was published in scrapbooking magazines locally and internationally. More than 3 years ago I started giving classes in my hometown and since then I traveled all over the country and abroad to share with others my passion for scrapbooking and mixed media. I love showing others how creative process can be used not only for making pretty stuff but also for soul healing. My style varies depending on my mood, the inspiration I draw from the memories on the photos or the pretty papers. I think that allows me to give more to the people who come to my classes - you never know what you will get but you certainly will not be bored!
