Hetty Douglas is perhaps best known as an artist. At least she was until she became internet-famous in the summer of 2017. Douglas often incorporates humorous text onto her colorful canvas art. When in McDonald’s one day she spotted a group of workmen and shared her unique, witty art on social media. Sadly for her, though, the internet wasn’t amused.
Douglas is a 25-year-old promising artist who grew up in Nottingham, England. As a child, her career path seemed pre-determined. After all, her mom studied fine art at university, and many other family members also have an imaginative streak.
“I’ve always been creative because my mum’s a fine artist,” Douglas explained to the website Ssense. “My aunt is an artist, my cousin is a graffiti artist. My brother is an artist too. I’ve always been around creative people.” It’s an influence that rubbed off on an impressionable young Douglas.
