My Bio
I am an aspiring "artist librarian." An artist librarian isn't really a profession, but a term I made up to describe my educational journey. I am earning my undergraduate degree in art and will be attending graduate school for my Masters in Library & Information Science with the goal of becoming a children's or young adult (YA) focused public librarian. Reading and art have been my two life-long loves, so why not combine them?

My formal training has been primarily in drawing and painting, but I've attempted to branch out into other media such as printmaking, sculpture, and fiber art ... As a result, I am a bit of a "jack of all trades, master of none" type. Well, I'll let you take a look yourself and decide...

I am a life-long crafter and have a high respect for artisans and craftsmen --despite what certain fine arts professors may say, I believe craft can be fine art. That being said, I've delved in many arts and crafts such as crochet, knitting, jewelry making, origami, balloon twisting, sewing (primarily clothes or plushies), and more!

I also enjoy costuming and have recently begun to focus on it ... I'm excited to expand my sewing skills and explore prop making, wig styling, and armor building as well.

As tuition for graduate school is expensive, I'm open to the idea of commissions! I am skilled in multiple forms of media and techniques, so stay tuned for more details to come soon!

So that's just a bit about me and and the types of art you might expect from me ... For more information or updates, check out or subscribe to my blog or Facebook page below! Thanks for stopping by!

Thank you for the add! Hope to see more of your work :)
I'm hoping to update one more time before school starts!  You should add more stuff later too. :) Hope you're having a great summer!
That's good and awesome! I really love your How to Train Your Dragon cosplay, you look exactly like her :) I finally watched How to Train Your Dragon 2, but still have to watch the first movie. Have you watched the How to Train Your Dragon 2 yet? 
Aw, thank you!  I worked really hard to make the proportions of the skirt panels and such correct, so that makes me really happy. =)

OMGoodness, you should definitely watch the first movie ... it will add so much more meaning to the events in the sequel when you do ... =)  Isn't the animation amazing? Yes, I actually wore this costume to the premiere (there were a couple other people dressed up also, so that was neat).  I can't wait to get the blu-ray ... ;-)
