My real-life name is Caitlyn, though I consider ladyphlogiston to be my name also. I'm mostly here because I wanted to have all my art in one easy-to-access place, instead of having it scattered about Facebook and various blog posts.
I'm married to my childhood sweetheart, and we have two little girls. I have a degree in Mechanical Engineering but never really used it. I am a Messianic Jew, a Jew who believes that Yeshua (Jesus) is the Messiah. I consider my alignment to be Chaotic Good. Despite a creative and nurturing mother and an excellent high school art teacher, my art was mostly squelched for a long time by anxiety and depression. As I've gotten spiritual deliverance and psychoemotional healing, it's been coming out more and more. I try to paint or sketch every day, which doesn't happen, but I'm better off when it does.
Some of my paintings are prophetic, which just means that God gave me an image to paint and I painted it. Sometimes that's an in-the-moment thing, where I sit down with my supplies and paint what comes into my head, and sometimes He gives me the sketch when I'm away from home and I paint it later. I don't know yet how He plans to use them.
I mostly paint in acrylics, but I also enjoy oil pastel and pen drawing (I don't like drawing with pencil - the ability to make corrections is bad for me) and printmaking and a number of other things. I'm more-or-less participating in the Documented Faith project, which means that I sit down with a sketchbook once a week to journal about what God and I have been up to and to paint or draw whatever I feel like. Some of those artworks are prophetic-ish, some are not. Some are just duds, which is why not every week gets posted.
