Okay! On to the fun stuff.
There is a really interesting question on this site. It asks, "Which would you be more attracted to: An Artist or A Scientist". I had a hard time answering because I love art AND science, but ultimately I decided I'd be more attracted to an artist. Being an artist myself I felt a bit narcissistic until I realized that even though I am an artist by trade, at heart I am a scientist. It is with the skeptical, logic and order seeking soul of a scientist with which I approach all things in my life, even my own art. So regardless of actual profession, I want to be with someone who lives their life artistically, who sets logic aside and makes use of intuition. Someone who views the world with an open heart and approaches new situations as if they were gifts, opportunities to release another masterpiece from the blank canvas.

I love learning, plain and simple. Science, math, art, literature, philosophy, religion... all of these things interest me because I have an insatiable need to understand how things work and why people do the things they do. I soak the information up like a sponge just waiting for the next person to come along so I can share all this wonderful new found knowledge. I've been told this means I'm an extrovert.
Fun fact: I had hummus for lunch.
Art changes people, and people change the world. This isn't the only reason why I create art, but it succinctly expresses why art is important to me, why I feel it's important to the world, and why ultimately I chose it as my life's work. Needless to say I'm very passionate about it.
Fun fact: That was super serious. Here is a surprised cup of coffee:
