Artist stealing from artists

This is the biography of a woman who calls herself an artist by stealing the copyrighted work of
others, painting it and profiting from it. So far, she has sold $5,050 worth.

I feel this is not an artist, because a true artist would never do that to another, I feel she's
just a photocopier with a paintbrush attached.

It is felt by many that she has used a projector to project the image onto the canvas and then paint
over it. That is assembly line manufacturing for financial gain, not painting. See the Little Blue
overlay in the Paintings_Photo folder.

Mike, I'm sorry to hear about your problems with that site. We work too hard to sit silent while someone rips off our images. Heidi Knutson has been exposed for the person (and I use that term generously) that she is.

"Keep checking back - I've just begun!"
No Ma'am - you've just finished!!

Glad you noticed this and managed to expose her.
I had a similar problem with a Bulgarian site showin
some of my images as "Wallpaper" for sale.
Unfortunately, I haven't been able to do anything about that.
