This weeks "Friend on Friday" is the lovely Nora Blansett who is from New Minas, Nova Scotia, Canada. Her work is very pretty and wonderfull.
Nora Blansett has always been an artist, though she's had no formal training. She began drawing as a very young child and had her first gallery show when she was in her early teens. Growing up internationally she spent most of her childhood bouncing from country to county with "home" being Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. In her teens she moved to Montgomery, Alabama and currently resides in Nova Scotia, Canada.
Living abroad had a major impact on her art and opinions of the world around her. She began drawing intricate designs from the Middle East and India incorporating vivid colour, later finding a love of figurative works. Eventually she found her way to fantasy: Faeries, mermaids, pixies, brownies and all manner of mystical creatures. The primary mediums she works in are ink, colour pencil, and watercolours. Her award-winning work is collected around the globe, published in various magazines and books and licensed for a variety of products.
