Art is my passion in life. It keeps me vibrant and in flow with the Universe. I couldn't live without being creative. It's part of my very essence.
I've been an artist since childhood, but just didn't admit it.
I'm a wife, a mother, a grandmother, a loving friend, a blackbelt, a ghosthunter...an artist.
I reinvent myself every few years, but I'm still me.
I choose to love life.
I was born in Detroit, married in Boston, had kids in Indianapolis, settled in Northern VA. I did art commissions the whole time, but in the last year I've been in a position to be a starving artist full time and I'm loving it!
I am a stay at home mother.
My art is a support for my daughters education!
I have been involved in art sense I was a child.
I take my buyers seriously and give gifts with every order!
I was born 1977 in Bangor, North Wales. Studied illustration at Norwich School of Art and Design, graduating in 1999. After a spell of illustration, I became a professional painter in 2001. I am now living and painting in Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK.
I've moved extensively and lived in England and all over the U.S.
I am completely self-taught as an artist.
I began self-publishing solely around 1998 and have not worked for anyone since.
I've had health problems from years of overwork.
I have taken courses at university and art schools. I read art magazines and books. I study the work of other artists.
Facts about biographies are seldom read and usually dull and boring. I have no need to express those facts about myself to others. It is enough to say that I am an artist, a mother, grandmother, and friend. It is through these identities that my life speaks.
I started copying Rockwell when I was three.
I've studied under what I consider some modern Masters at the Art Student's League in NYC, and other workshops.
I've sold my work routinely since 1995...scratched out a living doing what I love, while raising my family alone...
I am now regularly collected, and continue to advance with my career and mostly, with my most private and unending love, which is art.
Born in Liverpool, England, in 1979 to a family of luthiers, I began life with a love for art, and would sit drawing silly faces for hours on end at the age of one. My fascination with myths, fables and fairy-stories began the day I first learned how to operate a book.
I studied for about 5 years in a private Fine Arts School in Montreal, Canada back in the early '80's.
