Artist's Profile

Little Waif

Welcome to the world of Little Waif . Art has always been around me and I've always been into creating. But things really starting happening when I tried oils for the first time. Something about painting with oils is really soothing to me, how soft the paints slide on the paper and how they shine ... it really makes me blissful. I love to share my art with other people and hear what they think of what I've done. I love my creations because it is like a little bit of me has crawled onto the canvas and said "see, I exist.... I am not just in your imagination".

What I really think is cool about art is that you can create your own little world and no one can tell you what the rules should be. If in your world you think people eyes should be further apart, then they should be. Dogs can only have two legs and fish can swim in the air... it doesn't matter. Of course others might think what you do isn't art, but what do they know? They don't live in your world. I am the ruler in my world, shouldn't you be the ruler in yours?

I like to paint unusual dolls, faces, eyes, and scenes from my vivid imagination. I am very attracted to paintings which appear childlike or "child done". When I paint, it is like the child in me takes control of the paintbrush and tells me what she wants to see.
