I am as old as I am and as young as I feel. Still searching for the true me. As soon as I meet her, I'll let you know.
Artist, writer, avid video game enthusiast, lady, pessimist, wine lover, food lover, peace seeker, mending.
Those are the esoteric things about me, anyway. I grew up in San Diego, CA. Still miss the sun. Seattle has nicer people, though. And a lot of pretty plants.
My earliest memory of art comes from an art contest I won in kindergarten. I had drawn dinosaurs which I think I copied from the Highlights dino stickers. Winning the contest sparked the idea in me that maybe I could be an artist. So, I got to work. One of the main things I remember from childhood is drawing. Through Jr. High and High school I never went anywhere without a sketchbook and as the internet became a thing, I scoured the web searching for tutorials and practising my favourite anime characters. Not having a social life is fantastic for personal growth.
I attended every art class I could manage and when college came along I kept at it. After wrestling with a few silly ideas in community college, I decided that if I was going to spend all that money getting a degree, I wanted it to be about something I love. I finished my college career at the University of Washington and received a Bachelors degree in Interdisciplinary Visual Arts.
