Bio
 
Blonde Blythe has always had a love for dolls & art, so one day she decided to combine them!  After painting a portrait of a blonde Blythe doll in Kozy Kape, she sold the painting in an eBay auction, and has been hooked ever since.
 
Blonde Blythe's Blythe doll art was featured in the July/August 2001 issue of Barbie Bazaar magazine, upon her discovery by Tiffany Lewis, author of "Blythe American Gothic." Her art was more recently featured in Dolls magazine (October 2009 edition) in the article, "The Eyes Have It."
 
Although Blonde still delights in painting her unique renditions of the Blythe doll, she has also developed a variety of big-eye characters who light up the canvas as doll-like fairies, witches, mermaids, fairy tale maidens, Genies, pin-up girls, ballerinas, and an endless parade of never-ending characters! Blonde paints whatever her mood inspires her to paint, so--brace yourself--because you never know what to expect!  
 
Blonde is a big-eye aficionado, and collects retro prints from the 1960s and 1970s by Gig, Eden, Maio, and Margaret Keane. She is also a Betty Boop fan.
 
Her favorite pastime is watching old movies (Chaplin, The Great Gatsby [with Robert Redford], Meet Me in St. Louis, Somewhere in Time, A Will Of Their Own, Cheaper By the Dozen [the original version with Jeanne Crain], Little Women [with June Allyson], Margie, Pretty in Pink, Sixteen Candles, Ice Castles, etc., etc.) while she paints in her sunny studio located in the rural south. Blonde is a BIG fan of the Waltons--she owns seasons 1-9 on DVD! She also loves the Little Rascals (Our Gang) and silent movies. She adores Charlie Chaplin, Laurel and Hardy, Clara Bow, Louise Brooks, Rudolph Valentino, Buster Keaton, etc., etc.
 
As far as music is concerned, Blonde is a BIG '80s FAN, and she has an affinity for disco. Some of her favorite groups include Depeche Mode, the Bee Gees, Tears For Fears, K.C. and the Sunshine Band, and Sister Sledge. She loves all kinds of music--from doo-wop, to swing, to dixieland and ragtime jazz, to classical.
 
Blonde Blythe, a graduate of Jacksonville State University, is a self-taught artist who paints in acrylics on canvas. 
 
Her dream is to one day take a trip in H.G. Wells' time machine and travel back to the 1920s--really! ;-)
