Imagination is the only weapon in the war against reality”… The Cheshire Cat,
Having always wanted to be a fairy herself, Stacy is influenced by the beautiful sights she’s experienced during her travels.
As a young child, she started out on her journey in the deep woods of Wisconsin. Daydreaming her way thru forests where she thought she found doors in trees and mice who wore full tweed suits. This of course alarmed her parents, her father blamed it on those books, she read while hiding among the trees.
Then quick as a flash, she was whisked away to the astounding Rocky Mountains of Colorado and then later into the high desert mountains of New Mexico. This, is where she found a dear friend and exploring partner, in her horse whose name was Missy, who her parents had purchased in hopes of stopping the romantic notions she seemed to be displaying at the time. Sadly for Stacys’ parents, this only encouraged the fantasy world their daughter so loved to live in. She and Missy explored the mountains, sketching the beautiful animals, amazing trees, brooks and plants along the way.
After many years of this happiness, she found herself whisked away once more, this time to a very interesting place called Key West. This is where she discovered the ocean! Her parents continued to shake their heads in concern, as now their daughter seemed to be seeing mermaids everywhere!
Then, something new caught her eye! A wonderful man, who has put up with her odd sense of humor, her need to adopt anything that had sad eyes, renaissance fairs, and trees with doors in them, not to mention all that paint! They have traveled together to exotic places for 30 years now. They’ve lived in wild South Florida, the exotic country of Guatemala, the Blue Ridge Mountains of Georgia, the Semi Arid Desert of New Mexico and for a wonderful little while settled in you guessed it! A tree house in South Carolina! They have an adored son who, has inherited his mothers ability to see doors in trees! They’re a little wandering family, who for a time lived in a camper they lovingly called the TARDIS near the most fascinating city of Savannah, Georgia.
Then, they wandered their way back to the west, once again into the high desert of New Mexico in order to find clean air for their beloved son to breathe. Once there, to their joy they found that he could breathe again, though he continued to face many new health problems as a result of being a super hero who had lived thru leukemia. Being a Superhero can take a toll on ones health after all. They decided to settle down and turn a house into a multi family living castle, so that they could help their beloved super hero. All of this inspires Stacy, to paint onto canvas what she see’s in her own fairy tale way. Her parents still wonder at why she is the way she is, but she’s happy this way! It’s been a good life for her. She believes in imagination, romantic notions, love and laughter.
Stacys’ paintings have found homes all over the world!
