Who? Susan Boyle, of course.
Who? Right. There's more than one Susan Boyle. This one is an artist, and she happily owns: http://susanboyle.com/
She's a visual artist. Can she sing? I'm sure she's being asked, but do checked out her work. Buy something if you can.
My art education emphasized drawing, painting, and printmaking. I graduated from Arizona State University and began my career as a commercial artist working for several years in the Midwest and then in New York City. I wanted to be able to manage the world, and traveling seemed to be the best way to do that.
I joined an international airline and traveled extensively. Becoming increasingly interested in knowing what motivates people, I pursued a career in human resources. Throughout the pressures and demands of my professional and family life, I never stopped learning about art and about the nature of people, friends, and loved ones. I wanted to paint them all but I could not devote the time. Now I focus almost entirely on drawing and painting images of people.
Drawing from life, having a model in the studio, is my preferred way of working. My models are ordinary people, neighbors and friends, whose inner lives are often revealed in their gesture, expression, or demeanor. I strive to create compelling images that are fresh, honest, and immediate. My art exposes my perception of people and the world which balances humor with humanity.
The medium I currently prefer is ink sometimes in combination with other media, such as, caran d'ache, conté crayon, or collage.
