Jinky Kowalski – Prima Ribbonista {2011-12 Term}

Hi, my name is Jinky. Funny how my friends love to coin new names out of that very short name. I have been called, Jinkydoo, Kit-kat, and Jinkydoodles! What will you call me??  Smile  I am married to my amazing husband, my best friend, my partner in crime, and as a Software Engineer, my 24 hrs Technical Support. I was born in the Philippines, have worked several years in Taiwan, have lived in Vancouver, BC, where I became a Canadian Citizen. Now, I live part-time in Panama, Latin America. Me and my husband are both adventurous and we love to experience new cultures and experiences. So, we both enjoy having the luxury of calling multiple countries home. As long as there is internet and you can still have parcels delivered quickly. Smile
I have a Degree in Electronics and Communication Engineering, and have worked as a Quality Engineer for Multi-national companies.  But for now, I am just happy to call myself a 3D Paper Engineer Designer.
Yes, I love to create and design 3D projects that are beautiful and functional. I love making extraordinary gift boxes and Pop-Up Cards that you can use for party invitations and more. I recently developed a passion for fabric and ribbon manipulation and that reflects in my recent projects. I love how Fabrics and Papercrafts compliment each other and allow for so much creativity!
I am honored and beyond thrilled to be a member of May Arts Design Team. I can not wait to play with their products and incorporate their wide selection of ribbons in my projects. Please join me in this new adventure.
