Who am I?
By DNA and cultural experience, I am Alaskan born, from Irish-Texas heritage, with just a smattering of Chinese, French and Cherokee thrown into the mix. Okay, more than a smattering of Cherokee and Chinese, but, it’s hard to quantify or prove. It’s enough to make me happy that it is so.
Really, I am a writer, who also, at times, is a painter, drawer, beader, singer … Art, to me, is life. I have lived many different lifestyles, in many different places. I consider the Earth my home and love to delve into ethnic diversity in clothing, food, company, interior design or whatever else there is on offer. There is too much beauty to limit oneself to a small corner of a big and lovely planet. And, everywhere, at all times, there is and always was, in me and surrounding me, artistry.
I am a lover of God, fond of Man, at peace with nature (when it lets me be so), and open to possibilities. If I could, I would change my name to Camille (always Camille, never Cam or Millie), live in a home that has a shady court yard, and, gather peaceful artists there to sing, dance, paint and carry on.
I have sold paintings and drawings in the United Arab Emirates, England, Ireland, as well as various parts of the United States, as exclusive pieces to private collectors. I not do art shows or sell in galleries, in general, being something of a recluse by nature. I would prefer to spend my time in the creation of art and in the company of good friends, than in self-promotion.
Isn’t that a beautiful dream?
I would also prefer to sell the piece, as a type, just the once, even when it is digital By that, I mean that I would prefer someone who purchased a print in a certain medium to know that it is exclusively their purchase. When their purchase has been made, that piece, at least in that medium, will no longer be on offer. That is the idea of purchasing artwork, in part, that you are finding something that speaks to you and is for you.
I am not making guarantees, mind you. I cannot promise that someone will not be purchasing a small canvas print, just as you are purchasing a large one. But, I can guarantee you that once I have been informed of the sale and production of a canvas print, photographic print, or what-have-you, I will remove all possibility of that sort of print of that piece being purchased by any other person.
This is true, also, of t-shirts, hoodies, dresses, scarves and the like. Smaller purchases, such as mugs, stickers, drawstring bags will be kept at a lower price with no guarantee of any attempt at exclusivity.
