Quillcards is owned by the two of us - Tamara Colloff-Bennett and David Bennett.
Besides producing the images and ecards for this site, we also write the articles in our Blog. This includes articles about travel, the environment, literature, and the background to the photographs that feature on this site.
The travel articles that we write in our Blog are featured on Lonely Planet's website.
I write material for Quillcards and contribute to the ecard and print design and production, as well as to the design of this site. I also develop and research ideas for the creation of the Quotations and Festive & Seasonal ecards.
I have degrees in literature, journalism, language teaching, and applied linguistics. I also have a strong interest in music, and have played the piano since childhood.
I have worked as a writer and editor (principally in book publishing) in the UK, USA, and South Korea, and as a teacher in the USA and South Korea.
I take the photographs for Quillcards and contribute to the ecard and print design and production, and to the design of this site.
I have been photographing for more than ten years and shoot with digital cameras. I use a variety of techniques in Photoshop™ to produce the final image.
In the past I have worked as a lawyer, a woodturner, and a teacher.
