Our Story: 

Lynne Marie Calvert

Lynne wanted to be an artist since the age of 10. She was encouraged to go into careers that “made a living” and put aside her dreams of being one. She went into the Air Force as one of the first women in avionics (aircraft electronics) repair, got her bachelor’s in computers, and went on to a career as a computer network engineer. She loved technology, but art kept calling.

She began an exercise to get rid of artist’s block she called “The iPhone and iPad 365 Day Challenge.” She started drawing on the iPhone, then went on to several versions of the iPad. Around Day 300, dragons emerged. She’s still not sure where the dragons came from or why they showed up.

Lynne is also an Internet pioneer. She’s been on the Internet since 1994 and has written several books. Her most popular was “The Little Website That Could,”  written in 2000 and out of print. It was the catalyst for several of her readers to become Internet millionaires. You can read the whole, updated version of the book and many of her essays on the Medium site here:

She released the latest version of “The Little Website That Could” October 2017.

She has written 4 books for children called Amazing Dragons Volume 1 and Volume 2, with their companion coloring books.

You can see how her dragons are created in these videos:

 

Lynne lives with her husband and best friend Jack in Charleston, South Carolina.

Jack Kevin Calvert

Jack has loved art since he was a small child. Jack is a writer and an artist. He specializes in graphic art, but he also creates some very cool spider dolls. You can see what he’s up to in the Sock Dolls section of this site.

He also spends most of his time as a Charleston tour guide and writing travel journals of the area for Mosquito Beach Press while taking photos of South Carolina.

Lynne and Jack are owned by 3 chihuahuas, two of which are named after U.S. Presidents and one who is named after Lynne’s favorite town in Alaska (after she spent a decade there).
