Linzi Sayles, Doncaster Member Since February 2009 Artist Statement I am Linzi Sayles, the girl responsible for all these paintings! I am a 22 year old artist from Yorkshire, UK. Drawing was the only thing I was really ever good at at school, though I wouldn't say art was my faveourite lesson because I only wanted to paint what I wanted, and hated being told what to do! I always loved faeries and when I was 6 or 7 I actually believed they did in fact exist,until sadly I grew up and realised that wasn't the case. Instead I started to paint them, and I would often dream up mystical lands. Fantasy art was never encouraged by my art teachers, but despite this I completed a Foundation in art and design, and a degree in Illustration. Though I was never happy unless I could paint on impulse, something usually pops in my head and I have to go by instinct.
It's sometimes hard to predict how a painting will turn out, while other times I know the exact outcome. I use various types of media, but I mostly use watercolour. I don't tend to stick to one style, but it isn't a concious effort, it all depends on my mood, and my mood often changes! which adds variety to my work.
When I am not painting (which is usually late at night) I am making jewelry or I am asleep!
