My name is Donna Linton. For most of my life I have been very creative & have loved making things.

I was so passionate about this, that I decided to make a business out of it. So in 1999, Kiss My Patootie came to be.

Over the years I have been sewing kids & adults clothes, sculpting, making beaded and resin jewellery, painting anything that will stand still long enough, screen printing, candle making & tie dying (just to name a few). More recently, I have turned my love of art and colour into writing and illustrating children's books.

Kiss My Patootie has grown over the years. What started out as a part time hobby, has grown into my full time business. While I still have the occasional market stall, I now run pop up shops that support other local artists and creators as well.

As well as running Kiss My Patootie, I am a mum of 3 gorgeous kids (now adults) between the ages of 18 and 24. In my spare time (ha ha) I love to read.
