Denise Fulmer has known she wanted to be an artist since the age of 3. She majored in Art at Furman University, Class of 1973, receiving the Mattie Hipp Cunningham Scholarship for Excellence in Creativity in the Visual Arts in her junior year (1972). She has worked professionally as a technical illustrator and has undertaken freelance work in painting and drawing. Her vision is romantic, whimsical, and spiritual.
Also Denise has created hand-woven items for sale at craft fairs. She has created cloth dolls and stuffed animals, which were donated to local toy drives for distribution at Christmas. Denise has created 10 self-published books through Blurb.com. Five are now on Amazon.com. Four of these books on Amazon have book trailers on YouTube.
Denise has created 37 videos on YouTube about her interests in art, poetry, books, animals, and family. She also has contributed to Niume, a blogging platform based in the UK, for one year before it was disbanded due to lack of funds. Her blogs were a combination of her art and writing, often using her art to illustrate her poetry. She was honored with Staff Picks for 2 out of 50 of her blogs while there.
In 2008, Denise was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, but continues to sell her art through FineArtAmerica.com and her own website here:

Denise demonstrates her courage and resilience when she explains,
"I am still an artist, no matter what condition my body is in. Being an artist is a condition of the soul."
