My Bio

I am a Canadian artist, specializing in pet portraits! Right now my favourite mediums are gouache paint and dry pastels, but I consider myself a jack-of-all-trades kind of artist, and have experience with many traditional mediums. I stream myself creating often, on Twitch:

Outside of art, I am enthusiastic for historical costuming, and take particular interest in the style of (and the events influencing it!) of WWII. I have taught myself how to sew, and make many of my own clothes also. I am passionate about nail polish, pizza, vintage hats, and kitty cats.

www.twitch.com/blighted_angel After much pressure from friends, I've begun streaming art sessions on Twitch! It's so exciting to be able to share my love of art on a new platform, and hopefully with lots of new friends. I've been exploring others on Twitch and have already met some pretty amazing people. Come check me out, sketch with me or just listen to me gossip about paint or artists or nothing much at all!

It's the day after my first art sale.  I feel like it was a successful sale, I made a bit of money selling originals, I made some new friends, and I learned a LOT.  Really, the learning is the best part for me.  I can't wait for the next sale, I'm going to start working on new pieces as soon as I can! (Including paintings!) AND I branched out and made a REDBUBBLE page, so my stuff could be printed on all sorts of things!  If you want something of mine on a shirt or a notepad or something let me know and I'll get it up there!  I think my favourite is the yellow duckling, it looks so freaking adorable on a shower curtain!! And the greyscale sk

I actually completed Inktober, this year! I did the official prompt list, and everything (it's all on my Instagram https://www.instagram.com/blightedangel/) WOW was it ever a challenge, but a fun one. I was a bit late finishing, but I think the completion is the important part.  As expected, I had some good ideas, and some not good ones. School is almost over, and I am signed up to participate in the end of year ART SALE at VIU!  If you're in the vicinity on December 6th, stop by the View Gallery and buy a piece!  I'm bringing soooooo much stuff!
