I am a freelance artist who likes to dabble in everything from photography to oils. I draw a lot of my themes from nature, but I don't do pretty landscapes. My work has been described as unsettling, strange, and on at least one occasion frightening.
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.
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 huge passion for shapeshifter folklore and stories. I could tell you about almost anything from selkies to the kitsune.
I read a lot. I have a kindle that is loaded with lots of books I love and lots of books I plan to read, however I do still prefer paper books. Giving a full list of all the books would be impossible and/or very long.
Some writers I enjoy:
Kate Morton, Neil Gaiman, the Brontes, Shakespeare
Favorite Poets: T.S. Eliot, William Blake, Brigit Pegeen Kelly, Stanley Kunitz, Milton, Edgar Allen Poe, Dante, Coleridge, Philip Larkin, Robert Frost
(Same disclaimer as with books)
Rock, opera, classical, folk
wine (not a food, but still fantastic)
A blank book
Cultural stimulation (plays, operas, concerts, etc.)
