What inspired you to paint fantasy art and how long have you been painting?
"As a teenager and a preteen, I was always the outsider, the misfit. No one else I knew spent afternoons sitting in the trees talking to the little wild animals, or looking for faeries. I learned to hide that part of myself from most people, but that was when I started drawing, and later painting. I think it was a way for me to express that part of my life without fear of rejection."

Do you have any favorite Artists?
"Oh yes! Brian Froud is my all time favorite! He is just so wonderful, and such a source of inspiration to me as far as continuing to pursue my art. I also love Amy Brown, Jessica Galbreth, and James C. Christensen, among others."


How do you come up with the ideas for your paintings?
"Everything is capable of giving me an idea for a painting. If it gives me an emotional rush, I find myself thinking about it a lot, and a painting comes from it. It could be a movie, a dream I had, another painting, a story, or a part of my life that needs to be exorcised in some way, as with my painting, Nightmare. The horse paintings I do are almost exclusively inspired by my own horse, Pagan, or one of my other horses."


And lastly, could you tell us a bit about yourself outside of your art?
"I grew up in Colorado, on a small non-working ranch, outside of a very small town. I left the ranch at 17 for college, where I was discovered by a modeling agent and sent to France. I worked for several years as a model, and then an actress. During this time, I was married for 8 yrs to a musician, and we had a son. After our divorce, I moved to Los Angeles, where I still live with my new husband (as of March 17, 2001), my son, who is now 11, and anywhere from 10 to 20 animals. I have 10 pets, and I do wildlife rehab, and have up to 10 rescues of various species that I am working with at any given time. Besides my artwork, I own an all natural bath and body products company that I started called Medieval. I'm a busy girl!"
