Design Team Coordinator
aka inkyfingers and ribbon and I live with my very understanding husband who fully supports (and a lot of the time enables) this craft addiction I have. I have been crafting on and off for over 15 years. I love all things inky and I’m in my element colouring or playing with stamps and ink pads. My style is cas with lots of sequins! When I’m not crafting I am a huge film and book nerd. I have been a fan of Studio Katia for a while so I am super excited to be part of the design team and work with these amazing products.
In the past I was a mixed-media artist, but now I adore cardmaking and clean&simple style. My favorite mediums are Copic and Distress Markers. I love travelling, read fantasy books and collect stationery. I have a beautiful Scottish fold cat – Sir Oliver, who makes my crafting life more fun especially when he’s posing while take pictures of my cards.
My name is Monica Zerpa. I am so happy to be part of the Studio Katia family. I’m a wife and mother of two young girls. Originally from tropical Venezuela, I now live in frigid Canada with my family. I have been crafting since a young age, being introduced by my elementary school teachers where I started paper crafts with a focus on parchment work (pergamino) and a few forms of fiber art. I also tried clay work, stained glass and frosted glass among many others. As an adult, I started scrapbooking but quickly went back to my cardmaking roots and I haven’t stopped since. To me, crafting is my time to disconnect and relax and it has become a helpful tool to manage anxiety. Thanks in advance for checking out my projects and for your support.

If I am not stamping and creating, I love cooking, baking, gardening, reading or going for long walks as it’s so beautiful where I live.
