****I'm taking a break from Swap-Bot. I have just had too many people say they haven't received swaps, I myself haven't received 5 swaps in the past month, and several people never rate. :( It's expensive to resend swaps, and I don't mind if this happens occasionally because "things happen." I'll mis the handful of good folks I have met. The fun just isn't here right now.****. Hi! ~ I'm an artist and crafter from the mountains of North Carolina, USA. In addition, I am a classically trained pastry chef and pro photographic artist, proficient in photography, Adobe applications and Corel Painter. I am single, have two precious children (ages 21 and 26) and a frisky Bengal cat named Effie. I am super intrigued by how others use their creative talents. I love to paint digitally and then add some "real" paint before finishing my pieces. I also love to retouch photos and restore old and damaged ones. I struggle at some point every week with Meniere's disease (migraines/vertigo) and back pain. I try to make the best of my good days and delve deep into creativity for healing.
