when did you realise you love art...

I was asked this recently and to be honest, art and creating has been part of me as long as I can remember. There are photos at my parents of me in a nappy and mickey mouse bib painting with my hands and my feet! I was obbessed with painting rainbows and I still love colour, and more importantly how colours work together. My father is a sculptor and encouraged me to express my self through art and craft, my first stone sculpture was a sofa for my barbie! Not very comfy, but she is plastic. :-)

As a young teenager I loved Art Nouveau, Klimt and Pre-Raphaelite masterpieces and had these pinned to my walls....

When did you realise art/craft was your life? And what did you have pinned to your bedroom walls as a teenager?

  1. We have the same tastes! I've had the Klimt picture (above) on my diary and the Lady of Shallot picture hangs above my bed at the moment :)
