My Bio
I started wanting to draw back when I was maybe 4 or so... you see, my sister had just gotten these Lady Lovely Locks paper dolls. I really wanted to play with them, but was reassured that I was too young. So I decided to try to make my own.

That is when I discovered that I absolutely could not draw. XD Hand/eye coordination and muscle/finger strength did not exist. But from that day on I decided I would figure out how to draw.... and I've been drawing ever since.

Anyway, somewhere along the lines a friend of mine and I created some critters called Myotes. I really like to write about them and draw them. I decided they needed their own DA, so I created one for them only.
My Myote DA: :iconmyotes:

My other passions include dolls (mostly Asian Ball Jointed Dolls, but I don't discriminate too much. XD ), fashion, dancing, and reptiles (mainly boa constrictors)... oh... and I like pirates. XD

Also... go check out my sister's art: :icongnewi: She's amazing!

I am alive. Life got a little carried away with me for a while and the nerve problems with my arm that prevent me from doing a lot of art still persist. I do, however, intend to try to get through all of the hundreds of deviation stacks I haven't loo...

Well, it's been forever since I've logged into DA. I really need to get back into it. I've been working two jobs, one of which is at a tattoo shop, so I've been really super busy. I've got some new artwork though that I need to post.

It's been a long time. I haven't really been a presence here on DA for quite some time. :p I feel like I need to stop neglecting DA, but really, I have been super busy. The main reason for my current absence is that as of late last summer/early fall I had the wonderful opportunity to become a tattoo apprentice! So finally, a life-long dream is in the process of being achieved. I have been dedicating all my free time to the art of tattoo, so I have not been an online presence nearly as much. I hope to get a bit caught up on DA and to post some tattoo work very soon. :)
