My name is Lolita Parekh. Born in France, I now live in England since 2007, with my husband, and my twins (son and daughter). I work full time in a college library. So I am a full time mum and a full time librarian, as well as a full time artist.
I am a "Dream" artist ( I do work on Fiction/Fantasy, but I also work on Religion, Nudes and Abstract). Although I have always been creative, I started drawing and painting more at sixteen. In 2015, after getting more orders through networking and word of mouth, I felt that it was time to be "une artiste professionnelle".
When I first started drawing, I used to love mixing charcoal, pencils and pens. Later I experimented paint through watercolors, then in 2015 I took an interest in acrylic paint. I like the vibrant colors and textures that I get with acrylic, which I sometimes mix with a paste which gets me extra texture on the canvas to create layers. Even though I love using colors, I get back to my basics in black and white sketches from time to time. I also tend to experiment: papier mache on canvas, pen and paints, different paints together. The possibilities are endless.
I am still a child at heart,and I am still fascinated with stories from all over the world, from religion to fairy tales and legends, to fiction/paranormal books and movies. I create Dreams and Stories with my pictures, and send a message in each and every piece. I want my work to fill the void or empty walls (in your house, your office, in the restaurant, everywhere).
