Interests and Personality

BiographyI was brought up in East Kilbride near Glasgow but now live and work in Dunfermline, Fife. I am an impoverished artist and therefore still have to work part time in a 'normal' job! See my website for more of my work - www.kosanamarton.co.uk
InterestsPainting, surfing on my laptop, chilling with friends (usually involving copious amounts of red wine!), movies, TV and dancing
Musicvery ecclectic tastes depending on my mood, but one of my favourites are the Red Hot Chili Peppers
Filmsthrillers, action, rom-coms, HATE scary films
TelevisionFar too much, complete telly addict! Particularly love Desperate Housewives, Lost, Sopranos, Grey's Anatomy, ER, SATC...
BooksNot enough time probably due to the amount of TV I watch!
HeroesMy parents

Beautiful, I love your use of blues and orange. I do look forward to returning to Scotland someday. I think we'll wait 'til the $ comes back a little. It seems so expensive to travel these days. Thanks for keeping me posted, I always enjoy viewing your new works. Keep creating Kos. ~Mare

Once again, nice work. Very simple, but delightful. I always love the texture. Keep up the good work, and thanks for sharing.

Kos, I love them! Very beautifully done. Of the two I like the one you did in February most. The highlighting and the reds in the background really make it. Beautiful!!

Hi Kos, I just added "Light of Ireland II" to my New Work gallery. It is the last image on that page and is based on one of my photos in my Photography gallery with the same titled. I did this painting back in October. ~Mare
