The Team

Artfull Crafts has grown from a home-based business into a fully fledged commercial business, running out of the small city of Timaru, New Zealand!


Liz and Graham Gregory

Liz started Artfull Crafts in 2007, after working for many years as a school teacher. In 2015 Graham joined the team fulltime! His background in electronics, software engineering, computers and websites has been of great benefit to the business.

Liz has been making hand-made cards for many years, but has also developed a strong interest in scrapbooking and beyond the page projects. Her designs are colourful and creative, and exude the energy and joy that makes up her personality. Graham is yet to get crafty!

Liz and Graham have a strong faith in Jesus Christ and love to share the good news of the gospel.



Juanita Patrick

Juanita has been with Artfull Crafts since 2009. She was a regular customer when we opened the shop in the house, and became Artfull Crafts first employee. Juanita is a very keen crafter - enjoying both cardmaking and scrapbooking. Juanita is an American import who married a nice Temuka lad over 20 years ago!

Juanita's works part-time and manages the store when Liz and Graham are off on their adventures!


Lisa Ryder

Lisa was born in Timaru and still lives here with her husband and daughter. She loves creating with paper, paint and photos and her style is best described as eclectic, with a love of mini-albums, hand-crafted home decor items, and BTP projects.

Lisa is joining the Team, working Saturdays and other days as required. Find out more about Lisa on her blog
