Hello Everyone! I am from the South Coast of England and live there with my Husband and two grown up children. I have crafted from an early age but took it up seriously about 15 years ago. After visiting a local craft shop for supplies, I was asked if I would be interested in teaching classes there. This led to me teaching at many other crafting groups in the area. Since 2011, I have worked on several design teams for various well-known craft companies and have had work published in magazines in the UK and USA.  After finally realizing a dream to visit CHA a couple of years ago, I joined the Chameleon Team as a Resident Artist and Coordinator for the design team. I am so excited to have such an amazing design team to inspiration you this year! As for me, not only do I get to spend my days playing with craft supplies now, but I also get the chance to travel to craft shows, run workshops and demonstrate on TV for Create and Craft. It truly is a dream come true!

Tracy McLennon

Hey, my name is Tracy McLennon and I live my crafty life in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia on the east coast of Canada.

I’m married to my uber talented band teacher husband and have 2 beautiful step-daughters, one in university and one still in high school. Our crazy rescue pooch, Kya rounds out our little family.

I am a professional crafter and part time classical musician. I have been scrapbooking for about 18 years and have loved every evolving moment. My other passions include music, photography, drawing and geocaching. I cannot wait to create and share my crafting with the Chameleon Pen community.

Jessica Sanders

Hello, My Creative Friends!  My name is Jessica Sanders of ColorMeCreativeArt.   I am super happy to be here with you, and the amazing Chameleon Team.

I live in Houston, Texas with my wonderful husband and four awesome kids, who are growing up so fast!  I am a full time artist/maker, blogger, and YouTuber.

I have been making art my whole life.  It began with paint-by-numbers with my dad, craft and painting projects with my grandmother, and progressed to variations such as painting my walls with faux finishes, painting with my children, making maps using computer software, mosaics, and finally to painting on canvas and art journaling .

My passion is exploring art, creativity, and art supplies, which is how I fell in love with Chameleon Pens!

I am so thankful to be a part of the Chameleon Design Team (my first design team! Yay!), and share my love of Chameleon Art Products with you.  Let’s explore together –for the sheer joy of creating!

Olesya Kharkova

Hi my name is Olesya Kharkova, I’m from Russia. Live with my husband who supports me in my passion for papercrafting. I spend most of my time on cardmaking and coloring, almost every day. I like to tell a story with my projects and make images come alive with coloring, so to speak. Every single project means a lot to me. I have been papercrafting for about 6 years but found “my path” only in 2014. As for the year 2017 I’m looking forward to start working with new mediums, try new techniques and be successful in what I’m doing, I have also recently had my own first stamps made by So Suzy Stamps.

Sandra Kustić Uzur

Hi Everyone! My name is Sandra and I am from Slovenia. I am a wife and a craft maker. I have a lovely cat named Kitty that I adore and she is my princess and my best friend! I am still in search of my dream job that will allow me to shine but until then I will pretend that my hobby is my job. I love colors,  fairy tales, magic, sparkle and I love to dream and sometimes dreams do come true! This year I become a member of the Chameleon design team 2017 and I am so excited! I recently started my youtube channel and blog too, so it will be easier to share my work with all of you. So let’s get started.

Ilina Crouse

My name is Ilina Crouse. By day I work as Electrical Engineer/Bid Manager. I moved to the USA from a small European country (Macedonia) 13 years ago. I have been married for 12+ years and have the 3 most crazy and amazing kids, Anna (5), Milena (3) and Jason (2). By night (when the kids are sleeping) I am a card maker.
My passion is color and coloring, whether watercolors, pencils, alcohol markers etc. I have been stamping since a very young age(8), when my parents brought me a stamp set while on one of their business trips (while I still lived in Macedonia), since then I fell in love with paper crafting and card making. I started blogging in 2007 for a way to share my creations with my friends and family back home. Besides stamping and card making, I love running, especially distance running.
My life is crazy and there is nothing simple, so I try to keep my crafting style clean and simple. You will see a lot of white space on my cards and only one or two layers.
I love all of the Chameleon products and am looking forward to serving as Chameleon Pens Design Team member for another year.
