With a lifelong love of traditional stories, and anything magical or supernatural, Demelsa Haughton is influenced by stories far removed from real life, and endeavors to capture this in her paintings. An early memory that perhaps influenced this was being convinced she had seen a two-headed llama at a zoo visit. Embarrassingly, she continued to believe this until well into her teens. It was a sad, sad day when reality became real. She loves to create a sense of possibility in her work, and hopes that the viewer can imagine themselves walking through a forest one day, where they might be lucky enough to stumble upon a cat enjoying a nice cup of tea, meeting a giraffe that will take them on a ride through the clouds over some springy macaron trees, or seeing a two headed llama... Demelsa lives in the UK with her 3 children and her wonderfully supportive teacher partner.
