Lovejoy graduated from Savannah College of Art & Design in 2003. Her goal when leaving Savannah was to earn a living as an artist and to be creative and active every day. She then spent the next seven years developing her style with the palette knife and bold use of color in Sedona, AZ.
In Sedona, Lovejoy commissioned and sold a well-rounded collection of artwork, including the creation of a 51x7 ft. public mural titled, A Timeless Day in Sedona. Lovejoy also enjoys the outdoors – mountain biking, hiking, exploring, and loving life – which all tie in and inspire her creativity.
Lovejoy currently resides in San Diego, CA and operates a studio/gallery in historic Liberty Station where she teaches painting and encaustic classes and sells original works of art.
I usually don't know what my final art piece will look like when I start, only the subject and basic composition. Finding most of my creative flow within the wildlife genre, I developed a way to sculpt with paint, layer by layer. Creating a beautiful play of lights and shadows, full of unexpected colors side by side. It’s a dance, a push and pull until the form becomes whole. I find so much peace when I’m creating.”
