Lona B.'s Profile
My love of art and shiny things started back at that time when I was seven years old, growing up surrounded by cotton fields in the boonies of Bakersfield, Ca. Having limited access to stores in the country, my mother relied on her natural gift for drawing to make our crayon-colored paper dolls and their clothes, including my favorite..... the sparkly diamonds!.
Like my Mother, I also had an inherited ability to draw, but my desire to seriously become an Artist began in earnest about 10 yrs ago. Mainly self- taught, with a vivid imagination and LOTS of practice, I eventually developed my own style, which is based on a look of romantic elegance with just the right touch of bling! Oh, then there's my continued love affair with fringe and beads which I use in some of my designs. Maybe I'm a wannabe hippie at heart!.....HaHa.
I love to paint many…
