Aleyna Maris

I began painting after I developed M.E. and osteo-arthritis and was incapable of going out to work full-time. I fell into my love of this by accident as I was writing for children and couldn't find anyone to illustrate the images they way I saw them, so I decided to teach myself how to do it.
I still write, mostly poetry nowadays, but my main love is painting, all genres, and I use oils, acrylics, watercolours, pastels, gouache and occasionally tempera depending on the subject matter.

My ambitions are that my creations make people happy, smile or else lose themselves in one of my works. Naturally, I would eventually like to make a name for myself to prove that illness need not be a handicap to a new career, and perhaps inspire others to take up a brush.
I have been fortunate in that some of my work is shown on www.saatchiart.com
