|Conny began her career at a very early age as a fine artist. From the age |
of 15 she was selling her designs and interior illustrations to local
magazines and by her late teens was quickly increasing her clientele
base with full scale portraits some of which included award winning
architects and Senators.
But soon her passion for all things science fiction and fantasy crept in to
her realistic portraits until she finally made the decision to follow her
own style of work (a blend of gothic fantasy and pin up). To her surprise
her client base continued to grow, demand for her private studio work
increased, sending her work into the homes of European and US
collectors, and after some prodding from an editor at Paper Tiger to
attend her first Convention in 2002 she found herself in a whole new
world and whole new demand.
Winning the 2002 National Sci Fi Art Prize for Tempest, her first published
work eventually landed on a book that the following year won a Ditmar
and since then can be seen on the covers of Altair, Wakefiled Press,
ASIM, Continuum, Kink-E as well as being included in a best of pin up
annual in Aphrodisia. But most importantly, she is still able to maintain
the private commission work which is her first love and allows her to
work with her beloved pin ups.
