Things about Me, Multiple Personalities of Penny Lee StewArt
I find my art often affects my life, and vice versa.
A few years ago, I spent several months painting pigs for a rescue site, and their sad stories affected me so much that I became a vegan.
I used to be a professional puppeteer, and even changed my name to Penny Puppet for many years. I did ventriloquism, Hand Puppets and Marionettes.
I painted Cat Rocks and sold them at my craft store, The Crafty Lady Boutique, but they were too heavy to ship, although the craftylady.com still exists!
I tried bellydancing 20 years ago, and painted a series of costumed dancers ACEO size. My stage name was "The Pink Gypsy" and I even made a website, pinkgypsy.com
I painted this portrait of my Chihuahua "Lily" and then spent several years doing pet portraits in acrylics and watercolors.
