Jenny Mayes

“I’ve been crafting for well over twenty years. I enjoyed stamping so much that it led me to start up in business as Hobby Art and I have been co-owner ever since.

My favourite part of the job is visiting and demonstrating at shops and major craft fairs for customers who stock our stamps. I also do workshops and sometimes demonstrate on Create and Craft.”

Anna Flanders

My Crafting Fix is being able to make Greeting Cards. My main source of creativity is using rubber stamps.

I have worked with Hobby Art over the last few years and I have designed a small range of stamp sets. I love to see how other people are so creative with my stamps and it’s a case of

“Why didn’t I think of that!”

Lisa Baker

I have always made things from a very early age, using all forms of crafting but have been Paper Crafting for around 9 years and am a total addict. I love stamping and embossing, love techniques, love stroking papers and ohh the smell new stamps, I better stop there!!
I demonstrate at most of the major Craft Shows around the country and hold monthly workshops in Maidstone Kent. I also am a regular designer for Making Cards magazine.

Franka Benjaminsen

Hi. I’m Franka Benjaminsen and I live in the south-west part of the Netherlands, close by the sea. When I was a child I always was busy with drawing and colouring. About 20 years ago I found my way to the stamping world. I hope I can give you some inspiration using our beautiful Hobby Art Stamps.

Bernie Simmons

Hi Everyone.

Bernie Simmons here. Proud Member, of the Hobby Art Design team now for many years.

I live in the southwest of England in Plymouth near the sea. We are very spoilt with the moors on the outskirts of Plymouth and the sea on the other. I live with my Hubby and youngest son Rory (AKA Boy Wonder). We also have two fur babies. My eldest son is married and works abroad. Our two wonderful dogs, who because we live in close proximity to Dartmoor. We have nicknamed the Baskervilles! You can find tales of their adventures and my artwork on my Facebook page. Do come and join the gang.

There is also a Crafting with Hobby Art Page should you wish to join and see other artwork. This is a page run for you to either come and share your work using the wonderful stamps that Hobby Art produce. Or if you’re not that brave… just come for a mooch… we are a friendly group and don’t bite. My artwork is mainly based on colour, I draw inspiration from the environment around me. But have been known to go off-piste when painting or creating so if you see a blue and purple turtle or a pink elephant it will probably be one of mine!

Hope to see you soon.

I have been crafting for a few years now, as I find it the perfect way to relax and express my creativity. I started card making after being shown a demo of stamping and heat embossing, and my stamp collection is always the fist place I look when I want to make a project. I am looking forward to sharing my ideas as part of the Hobby Art Design Team.

Elaine Parker

I’m Elaine, I loved Art at school and I spent hours drawing and colouring when I was little. I have

tried lots of crafts, the latest being stamping and card making. I really enjoy creating something

from a blank peice of paper and using new techniques. I live just outside the lake district on the on the coast, I

love animals and have a houseful of pets.

Marianne Lait


My name is Marianne Lait and as long as I can remember I have loved to craft and create things with colour…..

My Mum from an early age taught us to sew, draw, paint, knit and just to love all things creative….. She too just loved just to wile away the hours creating anything and my Sisters and Myself followed in her footsteps in her wondeful creative ways…..

In about 2003 I found Rubber Stamps and as I had never seen them before I was curious what could these be used for and well what a wonderful hobby it turned into….. My love of Rubber and later Clear stamps has now become an addiction and one that I’m sure I will carry on creating art for many years to come…..

I found Hobby Art Stamps whilst I was wondering around a Craft Shop and was so curious about how to use the Scene It Sets of Stamps that I took myself off to one of Jenny’s wonderful Workshops and this opened up another world to me as although I can draw it takes a while to create landscapes from your imagination and so I was hooked…..

The rest is history and I have now enjoyed many years creating art work using the beautifully designed Stamps…..

…..and as you can understand from the above just how happy I am to be part of the Design Team for Hobby Art……
