I cannot remember my childhood NOT being creative . Since my early years my mom and dad let me experiment with all kind of materials. They told me I was an artist and I believe them. I owe most of what I am today to them.
From a very early age I developed a fascination to draw, paint and create all sorts of things. I was a quiet, shy introvert child with a constant unsatisfied thirst of knowledge about the arts and crafts.
I studied Business in college which I did not pursue and decided to trust my heart. I ended up teaching myself everything I know about arts. As a self taught teenager I became pretty good at classical oil painting. I studied the Old Masters, and Victorian artists such as William Adolpe Bouguereau and Sir Frederic Lord Leighton by myself. I was not the average teenager. I was definitely a young lady with an old soul with a keen sense of purpose, deeply in love with the classical/spiritual music and art. All this became a solid foundation of what Forgotten Hearts is about.
I met Gamalier in 2011 not knowing he was my neighbor since I was little. A very talented artist. Since then Forgotten Hearts dolls are made by the two of us. He has the knowledge I do not have and vice versa. We make a great team as an artist couple.
