After selling The WINKY BIRDS Arts & Crafts Centre in Manchester, where she ran workshops in Card Making and Crafts to adults and children Judith moved south to Monkton, Devon and opened an arts and crafts business online, Arty & Crafty Supplies, to enable her to devote more time to her writing.
In Devon, Judith continued to bring papercrafting and art projects to special individuals with learning and physical disabilities within the local community whilst supporting them in a caring role and also in an educational environment.
Since school Judith has always had a keen interest in Art which she used during her years of playgroup leader at Manchester Road Playgroup in Chorlton-cum-Hardy in the 1980's. Later in life Judith returned to working with Under 5's something which has always been close to her heart. Nowadays this joy is shared with her grandchildren Luke and Katie.
However, with the second contract signed for Words for Every Occasion and a third contract due for Just the Right Words at Christmas, Judith decided to sell on her Arts & Crafts website to Alison Green of Witzend Crafts in Congleton.
Still very much involved in the crafting world this gives her more time to diversify into her writing aspirations in other genres.
Judith says her writing, crafting and life success is due to her husband Colin and her loving family who have always been very supportive of her ventures. She also treasures her close friends in the Otter Valley Writers who also inspire and support her with her writing.
