I am a freelance artist and had a few shows back in the USA. I work in many media types, including but not limited to oils, watercolors, photography, ink, printmaking (intaglio, lithography, photo plates). I draw a lot of my themes from nature, but I don't do pretty landscapes or anything like that. My work has been described as unsettling, strange, and on at least one occasion frightening. One of my reasons for being in Europe is to see new places that might provide more inspiration.
When it comes to photography I prefer film to digital. The kind of photography I do is very hands on and physical and would literally be impossible to do digitally.
I love books: novels, poetry, non-fiction, art, travel, blank books for writing in, etc., it doesn't matter. Someday when I'm settled in one place I plan to have a large library. My desk tends to be scattered with various books that I'm reading and plenty of blank ones filled with drawings, writings, and whatever random thing I feel the need to put down on a blank piece of paper. Also: lots of pens and bottles of ink.
I also love writing poetry and short stories. Maybe someday I'll manage a novel but we'll have to see.
I love both the outdoors and the big city. I am just as happy if I'm sitting alone by the ocean as I am going to an opera in the big city.
I have a very strange and dry sense of humor.
I have a huge passion for shapeshifter folklore and stories. I could tell you about almost anything from selkies to the kitsune.
My friends say if I were an animal I would be either a black wolf, a barn owl, or a crow.
I am not super skinny. I'm not fat but I am definitely not skinny. I work out but I refuse to starve myself to have a model's body. If that's something that defines beauty for you and is important then you should go click on another girl's profile and not waste your time or mine.
What else...? Hmmm...I tend to bite.
