I am a 28 year old artist; a gypsy at heart. I graduated from high school early to attend Columbia College Chicago. There I studied photography and earned a BFA with honors in Photography. I have since been working as a commercial photographer, photo stylist and graphic designer. I love to make things and share them with everyone else!
I play piano and I want to learn the uke too (I bought a little baby blue one at a thrift shop). I like anything that has: piano, harpsichord, strings, orchestra. My Favorite artists right now: The World/Inferno Friendship Society, Amanda Palmer/The Dresden Dolls, Squirrel Nut Zippers
Some of my favorite authors include David Sedaris, Neil Gaiman, Brett Easton Ellis and I have just discovered how truely awesome audio books are!
I am a hardcore horror movie fan but when I am not watching those I prefer documenteries (go figure!)
I mostly crochet and scrapbook/paper crafts but I am learning slowly how to sew, knit and do some minor book bindning. I am open and interested in all crafts.
Pink, Chartruese, Mustard, Teal, Cerulean, I love all colors but I am always drawn to super vibrant colors.
