Crop and Cruise 2010 Featured Instructors!!!

Kiki is the owner and graphic designer for Kiki Art, one of Canada's newest companies!  Kiki has been a crafter all her life from making paper-mache puppets with her dad to cake decorations with her mom and painting, drawing and countless other forms of art in between.  She discovered scrapbooking as an exchange student in Kansas 20 years ago and hasn't stopped playing with papers ever since!

Kiki's scrapbooking style depends on her mood and the music playing in the background... sometimes clean and simple and others busy and bright, but always using anything she can get her hands on to add volume and texture!  She loves layouts, mini-albums, home decor and altered objects of all sorts!

Originally from Argentina, Kiki has enjoyed the experience of many different countries and cultures around the world, but finally found her home in Montreal, Quebec where she currently lives with her husband, children and a puppy dog who all know how to keep her busy!
