Gemma has grown up by the Dorset seaside, and adores any colour that can be found on a sunny shoreline or in the perfect sunset. She has a crafty eye, and is always looking for that perfect project to channel her inner upcycler. Her weaknesses are stationary (notebooks with a foil finishes), profound song lyrics and film soundtracks, and she can frequently be found stalking her way around floral pictures and stunning snaps on Instagram.
