My Bio
Hello to anyone who cares enough to read this and thanks for stumbling upon my little piece of the internet!

I'm mainly a traditional fine artist, well versed in a wide variety of mediums (oil paint, watercolor, acrylic, printmaking, traditional photography, stained glass, mosaic, wood carving, sculpting, etc). I'm also a lifelong crafter working mainly in clay and some crocheting. I'm also starting to learn needlefelting, because I obviously don't have enough to occupy my time.

I also have a group, Dork Out With Your Spork Out (…). My friend Carrie and I started a small nerd themed arts and crafts business. If you want to see us in person (because really, who would miss such an opportunity?), that's how we represent ourselves when we go to conventions and such.

Favourite Visual Artist
Paul Cezanne, Honore Daumier
Favourite Movies
Bridesmaids, First Wives' Club, Scott Pilgrim
Favourite TV Shows
Parks and Recreation, Adventure Time, Arrested Development, MLP FiM
Favourite Bands / Musical Artists
I listen to musical theater about 75% of the time so, I guess I would say my favorite composer/lyricist is Sondheim.
Favourite Books
Discworld, Harry Potter, ASoIaF
Favourite Writers
Terry Pratchett
Favourite Games
Harvest Moon
Favourite Gaming Platform
Playstation and DS
Other Interests
So I was initially wait listed at Bronycon and finally got a spot after emailing them about a month ago, last minute preparations have been eating up all my free time but I’m glad to see everyone again in Baltimore!

In school, I always teach a unit on Baroque art (following the Renaissance unit for chronology of course). Even though I've taught this lesson a bunch of times, I really looked at the tools the artists uses to convey emotion and storytelling and wanted to bring some of that into my own pieces. It's a bit odd to have Bernini and My Little Pony finding some common ground, yet here we are. I spent my spring break mostly sculpting and binge watching Young Justice, so I have a bunch of new pieces to paint. I was trying for some more expressive, character driven sculpts with greater diversity of expression and movement, hopefully I was able to cap

I've been ignoring this space for too long, so my New Years resolution was to get off my ass and start submitting more art and being active in the DA community like back in the day. One journal entry a week from now on and more art for your eyes. In in this interim, I've been really working on expanding the types of sculptures I make and better incorporating light up elements into the pieces. Thus far it's been a fun but challenging process. Personally, I've changed jobs again and am teaching middle school art again while also teaching nights and weekends at a BYOB paint studio. I pretty much work 7 days a week, so it's been difficult findin

:iconcelestia-plz::iconsaysplz:My good subject Pinkie Pie told me she had taken to congratulating some humans on their birthdays, but even she has her limits. So she asked us for a bit of assistance... and for such friends of ponykind, we feel it right to provide it.
