My Bio
I have been artistically-inclined for as long as I can remember, and hope to remain so. Sadly I have not yet found a way to make it work for me financially, or at least enough to make me less dependent on day jobs, which would of course give me more time to be creative! I have barely a few hours a day to myself these days.

Another obstacle is atmosphere - ideally what I need is a quiet, live-in artist studio where I have the extra space for my art and photography. Unfortunately here in the Boston, MA area, this is so far financially out of reach. I fully intend to find it though!

Most of my current work is more photography-based, but I intend to learn both Illustrator and my Wacom tablet to get back into drawing and bring it more into the 21st Century. Usually I would scan my drawings and work from there. Really an unnecessary extra step these days if you think about it.

I'm taking part in the MassArt Made Virtual Spring Market, going on from now until June 30. The main site with all the artists is here, and direct link to my shop is here:
I'll be taking place in Etsy's CyberWeek sale, Nov. 26 - Dec. 3. Everything in my shop is 20% off. I have stuff for sale here too, but no actual sales to prove that over the years, oh well. https://www.etsy.com/shop/spongestudio
Announcing that I'll be one of the vendors, selling art at Convergence 25, in Boston from May 3 - 5, coincidentally my birthday weekend! You do not have to be a C25 attendee to go to the vendor's market. More details at their official site: http://w

Thank you! I have a difficult time describing most of my work, but that's something I try and aim for.
