My Bio
FAQ's

As a scientist, I appreciate realism; as an artist, I appreciate symbolism; and as a dreamer, I appreciate imagination. ...As a writer, I appreciate the semi-colon. ;)

I'm a somewhat sporadic artist who will experiment with anything that catches my eye. I've been drawing forever and self-taught in most mediums, though in an effort to improve, I did take enough art classes in college to finish an Art Minor.

Currently, my favorite mediums are pen, acrylic paint, polymer clay, and fabric/faux fur. As a very tactile person I enjoy creating in three dimensions slightly more than two, but I would be lost without both.

I can also be found on:
- Instagram (WIP, More Finished Art, and Cats.)
- Wordpress (Tutorials & Process)
- Facebook (Not terribly active)
- Etsy(Not currently active though plan to be eventually)

I've loved wolves for a long time. They're slightly overshadowed by my love for foxes, but where I love foxes for their cuteness, I love wolves for their regal majesty (and the fact they are still so goofy!). I always wanted to make a wolf, but there were a few artist's works that really got me excited to give it a try. Here are a few wolves that inspired me to work on my wolf plush--and a few new ones as well! Faux Taxidermy: Life-Size Poseable Wolves: Wolf Plushies! These by @yellow-fr3ak-photos These by @SarityCreations These by @Jarahamee Some New(ish) Amazing Wolves! These are just a few of the ones I found early on, and a few recent favorites, but there are so many amazing wolf plush and kin out there! Be sure to go give these artists some love, and have a wonderful start to the new year! (also argh Eclipse journals are not optimal...)

As promised, here's your heads up! I will be listing 3 of my fox plush for sale on my Etsy shop on December 7th, 2019 at 10:00 AM PST. US only, free shipping. Frequently asked questions: Can I buy it now? Sorry, but no. In order to be fair for everyone, they will be listed at the above date and time.How much will they be? Between $650 and $675, free shipping.Why can't you sell outside the US? I've been trying to research how to sell internationally, but the government sites are confusing and the laws I've found so far are not kind to small businesses. I'm too nervous to ignore them at this point so for now I will have to hold off on it.

Your plushes are gorgeous! How did you learn to make them? I love your work!

Thank you! Self-taught with a healthy diet of YouTube and trial and error.

hey maybe you can help me, I saw a user on DA make a lifesize Sabertooth. It was posebale and could move its eyes and ears. Wasn't you was it?

Nope, it wasn't me. Was it this? If not then I have no idea.

Your work is beautiful! The white white wolf is what grabbed my attention and inspired me to make my own wolfie months ago, I hand sew all my plushies. He's much smaller than yours but I learned a lot along the way. Would you happen to have a guide of techniques you use most often? I'd love some tips!

Thank you so much! That's awesome, I'm so happy I was able to inspire you! Your wolf is adorable! :heart: The closest I have to a guide of techniques would be in this journal post:

For creating my patterns, I use this technique:

I'm active on Instagram almost daily, and post in-process pics and do AMA's, so may be a good place to find me for more tips. :)

Ooo thank you! I will credit you for my next project, that helps a lot :hug: I hope you have an epic day :3
