Hello! My name is Melody, I enjoy copious amounts of caffeine and long walks in graveyards.
My art forms include digital painting, drawing, costume makeup, and occasionally photography. My other hobbies outside of art are journaling, gardening, tarot, reading about anything occult, and volunteer work geared towards mental health.
I'm not looking to make art my profession, but I am always open to collaborating with other awesome artists, working on projects, learning new things, and fulfilling requests for portraits.
I was a crisis intervention counselor for 1 year, mentor in a Big Brothers Big Sisters program for 3 years, the media director / grant writer / whatever-else-you-need-person for a veterans project in 2016, and I'm currently a volunteer with Letters Against Depression. I like to stay busy, so I'm always looking for new opportunities to help out wherever I can.
