Hello, and thank you for visiting my profile. Here is a little bit about me; I'm a reliable person, good at meeting deadlines, and love to create! If you would like to see some of my work I'm Proff_V @ instagram. I'm always up for private swaps so feel free to message me your ideas.

I'm a feminist scholar and professor of Communication, Women & Gender Studies. I love the outdoors, nature, travel, adventure, and creating art.

My favorite swaps are ATCs, ATCoins, handmade postcards, mixed media art, and DAJs, but once in a while I'll participate in other swaps depending on the topic/theme.

Here are some of my other interests:

Arts & Crafts Skills: Photography, Jewelry Making, Papercrafting, Collage, Painting: watercolor or acrylic, Mixed Media, Quilting/sewing.

Favorite Artists: Georgia O'Keefe, Frida Kahlo, Judy Chicago, Mary Beth Edelson, Lynn Hershman Leeson...to name a few.

Favorite Colors: black and turquoise/colors of the sea [blues/greens]

Hobbies: Arts & crafts, travel, camping, kayaking, yoga, swimming, scuba diving, writing, collecting Dia de Los Muertos dolls, skulls, and other small items, collecting sea shells, mermaid art, and nature journaling.

Favorite Holidays/Themes/Issues: Mermaids, Dia de los Muertos, Eve, Snakes & Apples, Coffee, Dark and Vintage Halloween, Vintage botanical art, Rosie the Riveter, Virgin de Guadalupe, Cherries, Rockabilly, Tattoos, Insects, Travel, Sea/Beach, Sharks, Guitar, Classic Mexico, Caribbean, Indonesia, Recycled Art, Funky colors/patterns of the 60s-70s...especially floral, Dark Art, feminism/feminist art, contemporary civil rights and social justice movements, activist art.

Dislikes: Disney, Wal-Mart, McDonalds, Kawaii or "cutsie" items/designs, fluorescent colors.

Please note: I ALWAYS send my swaps and I ALWAYS send on time or early. If there is any issue, please message me here on swap-bot.

I look forward to learning about, and swapping, with you!

Take care,

DeAnna
