Cortney Rector would like every day to be a holiday or special occasion. She spends most of her time in her studio covered in clay, paint and glue. Originally from Maine, she now resides in Canada with her husband, three children and silly black lab. After earning her BFA from the University of Maine, she spent several years searching for the right medium and settled on polymer and paper clay. Her inspirations are found in nature and her beautiful northern surroundings. She is proud to have been published in over 20 magazines including Better Homes and Gardens, Parenting, Art Doll Quaterly, Prims and Holiday’s & Celebrations. www.cortneyrector.com.
