Hi everyone, my name is Janine, I'm 23 years old living in Toronto, Ontario. I joined DeviantArt in 2005 after hearing about it from a friend. I am currently going to University, working on my M.Sc. in Occupational Therapy.
When I first joined DA I did a lot of traditional flat work - pencil, pastel, coloured pencil, and the like. I tried digital and did a few paintings that way but have always preferred traditional. In 2008 I tried sculpting, at first using apoxie sculpt and then switching to polymer clay. I thought it was really fun and soon became hooked. My focus has been mostly horses and kirins but I am always working to branch out and improve. I am very accepting of critique and honest comments!
I am generally very open to answering questions about materials and things relating to sculpture. I am slow with replying to comments and am sometimes slow with notes too, so it may take a while to get a reply but I will do my best. There is a FAQ section on my website that answers general things and a few tutorials in my gallery that should give you an idea of how I do things. However, if you have specific questions feel free to note me.
I am currently closed
for commissions for at least 2 years while I finish school. I will still be listing items on etsy from time to time.
Thanks for reading, hope you enjoy your stay!
