My Bio
I'm a 21-year-old wannabe art-type currently studying for a BA in arts; I expect to graduate in 2012. I was born and raised in Southern California and love it dearly. My name is Finnish; my mom was born and raised in Finland. My father is an American "mutt". I'd have it no other way.

I am the eldest of four. The youngest was adopted from China in 2007 and I tend to talk about her quite a bit. She's one of my greatest inspirations.

I'm also a huge Lord of the Rings and Tolkien geek, if my journal and gallery were not enough hints. Tolkien has changed my life, as cliche as that sounds. I began writing and drawing because of his influence, and now I aim to get into the film industry due to Jackson's films on his books. That must count for something. And yes, I am in love with Aragorn. His lack of reality makes no difference.

I'm a really open person and willing to talk about basically anything. Feel free to send me a note whenever you want. :aww:

Current Residence: Middle-earth. Or SoCal. Wherever my mind happens to be at the time.
Favourite genre of music: Rock, 'Nu Metal', soundtrack music
Favourite style of art: Traditional, Digital
Operating System: Windows Vista. Bleh.
MP3 player of choice: iPod <3

Hey guys! As a few of you know, I joined staff a while ago. I just published my first article on the website concerning characters that could be added into the films, including this rumored Itaril. Included in the article are a few drawings I made for the article. Please let me know what you think, and if you have any questions or comments about it. Cheers.

Life is too complicated at times. My health keeps on going up and down, and it went through a similar spiral this last month. I am hoping to keep it up on the "up" path-- I've started yoga, watching what vitamins I'm taking (and taking more), and so on. I'd rather not be bedridden by the time I'm 30 :| So, working on that. This weekend, Thursday to Sun, is going to be busy. -I have to go to the city to a gallery for class. -I'm submitting several work applications. -I'm still working with TORn and I'll be posting my first article hopefully this weekend. With little illustrations XD -Also reading up on WordPress to get this darn, long-t

UnSeelieScarlet ( just gave me a year's subscription! O.O OMG ty! I'll be featuring those that gave me points over the last few months soon :) So, I've been incredibly busy this new semester. I'm taking Web Design, Macromedia (Flash), and Time-based Compositing (basically working with Adobe After Effects, which is a very cool program). I just posted my first animation from my midterm for the class. I'm really proud of it :aww: I finished my first website, as well, and for the final I'm going to completely redo it XD I now know that I want something a bit different. Last month I went to LA to see all the Oscar-nominated short films. They

Hi! I was just wondering: is the #tolkien group still active?
Lizzie: Hi, I love Tolkien too! my friends call me a "Tolkienist" It's true, there's no use in denying it from my side. Congrats on your BA!!!
Hello there, fellow Tolkien geek! Lovely gallery you have here :D Just curious, are you also on/a staffer at It seems like you would be!

But anyway, great works. I love when I find avid Tolkien fans like myself. It helps me remember there's still people with good taste out there :)
Hi Suvi, congrats! Have a great day!
