I'm a sculptor, ceramicist, jeweler, metalsmith, and teacher. I love working with tangible materials, and I love teaching art to others. I also love learning new techniques and mediums and my art is really important to me. I care a lot about equality and being helpful. I am loyal and committed to everything I put my heart into, and I try to be as dependable as possible. I'm also a pretty good cook (I used to want to be a chef).
I'm not even necessarily looking for someone to date, but I want to meet new people with similar AND other interests-- I feel very isolated within the art school, and would like to know people in other areas too (English, French, Science, Philosophy, Women's Studies, wherever).
I am a fairly physical girl, which can be seen both in my work life (as an artist) and in my social life (I'm definitely a hugger).
I enjoy relaxing, cuddling, cooking, talking, and peaceful atmospheres. I'm non-confrontational. I probably spend too much time on the computer.
I have a lot of love to give, and I think the world could always use more love.
I don't eat beef. Period.
I love chinchillas, and mine are my equivalent children. Someday I'd like a small dog, but I need to graduate first.
I also love being able to go out to a quiet isolated area and breathe fresh-air and relax in nature. I love traveling and hope to get to travel more someday. Currently, I don't get out much, and tend towards long days in studio and just a relaxed night at home with good food or a movie.
I'm fascinated by and enamored with the human body, languages, and gender differentiation. I think gender ambiguity is beautiful.
I'm looking for someone who isn't controlling or abusive. I want to meet someone who doesn't want to change who I am-- I want to be loved for the person I am, not the person someone changes me to be.
I really want to meet more people, so please, if you think we might be compatible friends, contact me!
My favorite movie is Imagine Me & You, followed by But I'm a Cheerleader, Better Than Chocolate, and Gray Matters. I also thoroughly enjoy Tank Girl, Bound, Zombieland, Sweeny Todd, the Saw series, Up, The Lion King, Toy Story, Rocky Horror, Repo: The Genetic Opera, Fried Green Tomatoes, What's Cooking, Mean Girls, Baby Mama, The Prestige, V for Vendetta, Edward Scissorhands, The Butterfly Effect, D.E.B.S., and many other movies.
