Maria Loomis

Greetings from Seattle, Washington, USA! My name is Maria Loomis and I am honored to be chosen as a new Stampsmith Design Team Member.

My greatest love, apart from my fantastic family and friends, is paper art! My love afair with paper, rubber stamps and coloring started over 18 years ago. It began on a snowy, blustery winter morning when both my sons were napping. Bored and trapped in my own house, I popped in a Dee Gruenig video I had checked out from the library. I was hooked and I have never looked back!

I continue to teach a variety of paper arts and mixed media classes throughout Washington state and at my local home stamp store, Friends and Company, in Issaquah Washington. I absolutely love sharing and learning new techniques with my students.

It will be a delight to keep you all inspired by showcasing The Stampsmith's line of products along with Kim, Estelle, and my fellow Design Team members Joanne and Rosemary!

Feel free to visit my blog anytime at Velvet Ink Cafe.
