Okay - finally I have made it here to talk a little about me.
I'm originally from Texas but have lived here in Florida since 1987. I really do love it here. I have been exploring art for my entire life. In the late 90's I became a professional artist in both fantasy art and then later, doll art. I mainly focused on my doll art after 2000 and have sporadically returned to fantasy art. Only more recently I have been playing with colored pencils again.
Art was something I always loved. I would draw faces on my school paper over and over. I absolutely love pencils.
I have never taken lessons other than art in grade school. I really wish I had and sometimes think about going back to school. I am hugely inspired by the works of Dali, Boris, Van Gogh, Disney... I could go on and on. Fantasy work of all kinds inspires me. I have links to some of my very favorite artists on my links page. These people are not only wonderful artists, but really nice people.
I work with all different mediums. I like watercolor, watercolor pencils, regular color pencils, graphite and charcoal. I also work with acrylics and polymer clay. This list can actually go on and on.
Mermaids are my favorite (can you tell). I have always loved them and was first intrigued by an animated Little Mermaid I saw when I was a kid on T.V. long before Disney's The Little Mermaid. Such gorgeous fantasy creatures!
I plan on working on different fantasy creatures in the future. But I will mainly focus on the female form.
