My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
OK. This is boring but I have to put this at the top (no one reads it in the "you should message me if" section it seems) as I'm tired of getting messages from people on the other side of the world, despite saying I am looking for someone "near me", especially when they're not even good matches! So, you should only message me if you live somewhere near me, or are about to visit Hobart. You should NOT message me if you live on the other side of the world unless we are an exceptionally, amazingly good match.

I'm passionate about many things, which activates the activist in me.
I'm passionate about art - both making and teaching it. It's no coincidence that there are animals in some my profile pics - I'm a big animal lover (not just the cute ones, and I don't mean I love eating them). I'm passionate about food and am always looking out for great vegan dessert recipes to test out. I'm passionate about learning, thinking, questioning and so love a good intellectually stimulating conversation. But I'm also passionate about having fun & so a really silly conversation that makes me laugh my head off is as important as a D&M.

I'm a highly sociable hermit who loves getting out and having fun, but who also craves time at home on the couch. I keep fit and active and both my dog and I enjoy long bushwalks. I've discovered the joys of the gym over the last couple of years & may yet take up a career in arm wrestling...

Like many women, I have more clothes & shoes than I really need, and enjoy dressing up to go out, but am not averse to donning the tracky dacks and slippers either.

I'm shocked at having reached the big five oh when I don't feel anywhere near that old. I try not to act my age unless I have to.

I have wonderful friends and believe that a good relationship is like a good friendship: we stimulate each other, care for each other, bring out the best in each other. But then there's also got to be that 'chemistry'. The spark that ignites the fire. I enjoy my independence and while a partner in crime would be nice, I'm by no means unhappy being single as my life is pretty damned good. Nonetheless it would be nice to be able share my good life with someone who is willing to give as well as receive. So, if you're an optimist who thinks life is too short to sit around wishing things were different and makes things happen instead, I'd love to hear from you. Who knows, that all important chemistry might even be there.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm always trying to find more time in the studio - the life-work balance is tricky. I have a permanent academic position, and other projects on the go too. So while it's mostly art related the art-making bit is suffering from lack of time.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Art-making (well, I try to be good at it)
Cooking - always on the search for great vegan nosh, especially desserts.
Teaching - according to some of my students, though I'm sure there are others who would disagree.
Writing, although I'd rather be making art than writing about it.
Procrastination - especially when it comes to writing...
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hmmm... to be honest I have no idea. My hair? (Blonder than intended thanks to a home-dye accident a while back now - no turning back from that). My shoes? I do like shoes...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Lately I've been reading more non fiction than novels, though I do like a good novel too. Just read The Emotional Life of Your Brain (Really interesting stuff). Now reading Sex and Punishment: Four Thousand Years of Judging Desire (also fascinating!). Partial to a Haruki Murakami novel (though the movie version of Norwegian Wood was very disappointing) and am now wracking my brains as to what other novels I've read lately...

I have little time to waste and a low tolerance for TV (Still watch ABC from time to time) so tend to go for series on DVD such as Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, True Blood, Six Feet Under, Deadwood, Dexter, True Detective. Can't say I have favourite movies but I'm more a State Cinema (independent/arthouse) goer rather then the Village/commercial chains. I don't get to the cinema anywhere near as often as I'd like.

My taste is pretty eclectic. Jazz, pop, indie stuff, gothic country... For example recently played on my ipod: PJ Harvey, Joan as Policewoman, Air, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Dandy Warhols, Gillian Welch, Franz Ferdinand, Florence and the Machine, Francioz Breut, Emilina Torrini, Jolie Holland, Lucinda Williams, Leonard Cohen, Martha Wainwright, Massive Attack, Nick Cave, Goldfrapp, Triffids, Tom Waits, Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

Food wise I love spicy food and have a ridiculously high chilli tolerance. Oh and very dark chocolate.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My studio & art materials in it
My friends
Animal companions
Walks in the bush (preferably with uphill bits)
My computer
Really hot chilli
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Art I might make and how to get more time to do that.
How much I wish people who are serious about social justice would see animal rights as a social justice issue.
What I might cook for dinner.
Sex - although given some of the responses I am getting on here I'm having second thoughts about my honesty on this one...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At exhibition openings.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't fall in love easily, but I don't fall out of love easily either which can be painful at times.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are someone smart, silly, creative, active, motivated, optimistic, kind, open minded and a bit kinky. You might not have much money, but you are generous of spirit. You might not be a veg-head like me, but you would be sympathetic to my views and wouldn't mind having vegan culinary experiments tested out on you.

BUT you should only message me if you live somewhere near me, or are about to visit Hobart. You should NOT message me if you live on the other side of the world unless we are an exceptionally, amazingly good match. I get so many messages from people who live nowhere near me, most of whom I have very little in common with, and so I have decided to not waste my time replying to these messages.
