English is not my first language so minor mistakes are inevitable, I apologise for them.
Writing poetry, prosetry & short works of prose in my native language since roughly 2004, in English since 2018.
In 2020 started experimenting with calligraphy and ink wash technique which resulted in my Inkworks.
I'm synesthetic, empath, Asatru and medieval armoured fighter.

Some of your visual pieces remind me of The Crow, your art certainly has a lot of gothic characteristics. I hope to see you get recognized for your talents.
Awh, thank you so much for those kind words! I've only started from zero this February so still long way to go.
I very much enjoy gothic (although don't dress like that because I would look like an idiot with my baby face) - started with Type O Negative, then Sisters of Mercy, Fields of the Nephilim aaand so it went. Also love Powerwolf's gothic image.
My art stems from few things - first of all, shading with ink is EVIL. Second of all, I used to do a lot of 35mm photography and loved developing prints with Arab gum, so I'm kind of drawn to this kind of black and white style. Also, I design all my tattoos myself, so it influences my style too. And finally, I find plain black ink the easiest to work with, and I love my signature split ink method like in Burnt Flowers Fallen. ^_^
I notice on your profile you say that English is not your first language. Is Gaeilge by any chance your first language?
