Monday Member Interview: CristinArt Fantasy and Fine Art

What sparked your love for fantasy?
As a young child I would always watch my grandma paint. She painted me a mermaid on my school pencil box and that all started my love for mermaids and the fantasy realm.

What inspires you to make your creations?
I usually get inspired by anything in nature. I love to draw and paint mermaids, flowers, birds and most anything to do with the sea and its creatures. As far as art influences, I love the works of Flemish artists, the Italian artists Raphael and Botticelli. I also appreciate art nouveau styles and the impressionists.

Do you have any pets or children?
I am married and blessed with a loving daughter who loves cats like I do. We take care of a mixed siamese lynx cat who is forever vocal and noisy.
