My Bio
I am an enterprising, visual story teller. Most call this an artist but I feel the term is too broad. Since the time I could hold a pencil I’ve found a passion not just in artistic expression but doing so in a way that includes a broad audience. I revel at the opportunity to present a viewer with a piece of work and watch their reaction, be it laughter, tears, indignation, or triumph. This desire has shaped and molded my life to bring me to where I am today.
I come from an inherently creative family. Being the only girl of four children I’ve been exposed to quite an adventurous life. Each family member has taught me a wide range of skills from auto mechanics to music. My parents always encouraged me to be inventive and independent and I’ve carried these principles into adulthood.
Today I am always looking for new things to try my hand at; recently I took up the violin and taught myself to play. I am a devout book binder and my other hobbies consist of finding the most challenging and random craft to make every other month no matter the medium. I also have the heart and soul of a satirist and have spent the greater part of my life creating works to entertain and amuse, my current means of delivery being the internet. My story is just beginning and I am eagerly working toward a life of productivity and prominence.

I won first in the State High School Editorial Cartoon category. It was a cartoon depicting the hot issue of the Terry Shivo controversy, it asked the question: "Right to Live or Right to Die?"

I've graduated with my Bachelors of Visual Art

I was wondering.

I know that you still draw the Davy Jones comic and you seem to like to write music.

I've written music myself, for my POTC fanfic. I wondered if I could share it with you.

I thought we did before. But I'd be happy to hear it again.

We did a while ago. But this is different music.

I write new stuff every now and then. And I've got a lot better since last time.

Dude that was delightfully dramatic. I love those deep rumbly tones. It kinda pulls you in and puts one in a thoughtful state.

Oh my god! I finally found your amazing art! You are the reason I started creating fan comics even before creating a DA account! I want to say its been around 10 to 13 years ago! I have been searching for your DA page for so many years now and while working bumped into one of your comics! I am so happy!

Thank you so much for inspiring me to be creative!

Thank you~! Thank you! Thank you!
