I've been an artist since I could hold a Magic Marker. I think the only time I haven't been doodling was in the womb, and only because there were no pencils in there. I am currently on a very driven mission to better my art. It's been hard - lots of paper was crumpled into balls and thrown into wastebaskets as the classic image goes - but a LOT of learning has come of it, and that is very exciting to me.|
Pens and pencils are my favorite tools, though I also enjoy throwing paint around, sometimes literally. I tend to work with mixed media, and I love the human figure. Aaaand I'm kind of obsessed with birds, so you'll see those incorporated a lot.
As for other things about me, I have also written my first novel and have been working on a second. I majored in dance/theatre and work part-time as a stagehand. For fun, I'm constantly reading and I also love anything involving heights, speed, and adrenaline. I live with the love of my life, a big-time fancy-pants video game designer named Craig, and the other love of my life, our retriever/shepherd mix named Ele.
I really enjoy making friends here so please feel free to strike up a conversation about absolutely anything!
Oh, and my favorite frozen yogurt flavor right now is... *drumroll* ...... coconut
