Torsa Saha

I am a software engineer by profession, but Art is my passion, my dream and something I breathe for. I have studied fine arts (Oil painting, Acrylic and Charcoal) for almost 20 years!! I have started my Mixed Media Journey last year ! I love colors!! I need almost 10 different shades of every color!! My favorite color is Teal and blue!! Nowadays my new love is stamps!!
My another love is art journaling and always try to depict a story through my creation!! 
I am addicted to Coffee!!  I love to spend hours at my studio with my coffee.

Hina Mirza

My name is Hina. I live in United Kingdom with my Husband and my son(5 yr). Basically we're from India. I did my Masters in IT, but by heart I have always been a passionate artist/crafter, working in mixed media, scrapbooking and altered art projects. I also work as a clay artist and specialise in doing some intricate personalised clay art. I am always keen to explore new techniques and love colors and textures. Junk and natural elements is another thing that fascinates me. Inspiration for me can come from anything, anywhere.. it is a blessing that gives wings of imagination and sets me free to create.

Working as a creative member is going to be amazing I am sure. There will be lot to learn, lot to share and lots of inspiration!!

Lanette Erickson

My name is Lanette Erickson I live in southeastern Michigan with my husband two sassy daughters and one crazy doberman. I’m an ex-banker turned stay at home mommy and one crazy crafter. I have always been a crafty person, but my love of scrapbooking began a little over 13 years ago. Over the years my passion has evolved from pure paper to more of a mixed media affair. I truly love all mediums and I am happiest when my hands are messy, I love to experiment with new products and try new techniques.

I’m not sure I have a scrappy style, I always try to showcase the picture I a scrapping. But If I had to define it I would say Romantic and playful.

I am super excited to be part of the Words & Paintery Creative Team! I hope that I my art will help inspire you to get your hands messy and create something you love!

Taru Jehkonen

Hi everyone! My name is Taru! I´m so excited to be part of the Words & Paintery Creative team! I live in Rauma, Finland with my sons Sami and Niko. I´m retired about 12 years now. I love cats. I have four sweet cats and they ventured on my scrapbook page often. I saw how my friend made cards on spring 2007. Inspirited by her I began make my own cards with 3D images. But then I found stamps and it was BIG LOVE right away! Then I found scrapbooking, mixed media and art journal. I love take photos – I was always take a lot of photo on my life. I love little bit crazy, funny and silly photos!

On my works I really love bold colors, shapes, layers, stamps, stencil and dimension. I love use different mediums, but I also love make like “clean and simple”! Just like what mood I have when I crafting.

Would you come with us playing with our challenge?? I really love to see your art. I hope that we meet together on social media!



I'm a Human Resource professional and have been working all through and been crafting as well. Recently I took a break and have dedicated my time to my passion for creating. I'm married and have a teenage son...its a small family. I have been into fine arts and painting having learnt Indian traditional art like Tanjore and Mysore paintings which is totally on gold foil and usually we depict Gods in these kind of paintings. I have been making paper crafts like cards/albums/gift boxes/ scrapbook layouts/ mixed media/altered art/journals/ decoupage......and so on. So art is something which has been in me from the beginning and also a great stress buster in my life. I love to play with colours and paper.....create something which gives happiness. Apart from crafting Music is something I love, Travel too.

I want to be a part of this great team who are a par with their own creativeness. I love to work on new styles and comfortably carry variations in work. Its a great learning to be among such beautiful souls who bring joy to our lives by their work. I have learnt the same way too. Hope my work brings an opportunity to learn and create more with you all.
