About Me

NOTICE : If you are expecting a card from me, please do not look at my Flickr photos if you would like to be surprised. I may have a pic of your card posted already.

I'm a visual artist living in central PA, USA. I'm particularly fond of working with graphite and ink, but I also enjoy using watercolor and gouache. My ATCs will be hand drawn or painted, so if you are in a sender's choice swap with me, please realize that I do not make the collage or scrapbooking type of cards. I've made a few attempts in the past but I have realized that it's not my calling, so I'm going to stick within my field :) This does not mean that I don't want to receive the collage types, it only means that I don't make them myself.

Things I currently enjoy swapping are ATCs, Skinnys, Postcards ( handmade or store bought ) Tea, Art Journal pages one at a time, and other sized art. I'm trying to learn different crochet stitches, but it's slow going right now :) It will be some time before I'm able to swap crocheted items.

A FEW FAVORITE ARTISTS - only a few as it would take up a lot of space to list all of them.

Favorite Music

Tool, Anuna, Oni Wytars Ensemble, Rokia Traore, Joni Mitchell, Public Enemy, Bob Marley & The Wailers, Damian Marley, Nas, Bjork, Daft Punk, Jethro Tull, Miriam Makeba... ...and many more. Far too many to mention here, as it could take me all day :)

Favorite Movies

Most martial arts films, including but not limited to Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, Tony Jaa to mention a few. Sci Fi - Star Trek - all of them ; ) Donnie Darko, Ink, Valhalla Rising, V for Vendetta, Equilibrium, Eden Log, After the Wedding, THX 1138, Underworld, Flame & Citron, The Big Lebowski, Snatch, Shawshank Redemption, many more...

Favorite Television

Broad City, Nova, Hannibal, Game of Thrones, Independent Lens, Star Trek, The Actors Studio, Fringe, Louie, Cowboy BeBop, Bleach, Samurai Champloo, other various anime series.

Some of my work




NOTE I collect most styles and mediums of art cards, as well as larger work. It does not need to be hand drawn or painted.

Favorite Themes

  • Odd
  • Unusual
  • Surreal
  • Dark
  • Gothic
  • Fantasy
  • Sci-Fi
  • Mythology
  • Pagan
  • Zodiac
  • Tarot
  • Impressionism
  • Realism

Favorite Colors

  • Milk Chocolate
  • Asian Themed Items
  • TEA - ( I have no allergies to any tea, I'm open to any type )
  • Japanese Candy, various types
  • Stickers
  • Art Supplies ( pencils, pens, brushes, etc.)
  • Postcards

  • Coins from different countries


  • CLOWNS ( I cannot stress that one enough ), Mimes, Duncecaps, baby themes and colors ( soft pastels ), laminated artwork, poorly made prints.

  • Flakers - for reasons that go without saying :/

  • Non-Raters. Rating someone is important because it lets the sender know their items have been received, as well as it let's the general swapping public know that indeed, the swapper IS sending their items out, and not just marking things as sent. Taking a moment to rate is part of swapping here on swap-bot.

  • Just a note...I'm what some might call an atheist, maybe agnostic, although I prefer not to have a label in that regard. However, I can appreciate the art of all religions and gladly welcome it, as it is of great interest to me. Just please do not send along any scriptures, doctrine, pamphlets, etc. Thanks :)

Comment: got it today! thank you for the beautiful hand drawn one :)
Response: You are very welcome!
Comment: OK, the day totally sucked... nothing went as it planned and I also felt like I was getting a cold, if not worse +.+ Then I opened my mailbox and took out your envelope... It was already very nice with all those lighthouses ^.^ Then... wow... I almost cried... The most beautiful Maura I've ever got T0T (And I even like that photo sooo much *,*) THIS is where I want to be someday... I picked up drawing to be able to do exactly that and people like you are an enormous inspiration! I love the other card too, it's amazing with all the details and red is absolutely the colour for it! Both are my treasures ^0^ I'm sorry to write a novel here, but you really made someone happy with a simple swap T.T Thank you so much ^3^
Response: You are very welcome :) I'm sorry you had such a bad day, but I'm glad my cards were able to pick you up a bit, and happy that you are pleased with them. I hope you are soon feeling better!

Sorry you did not make into the fishing theme atc. I will invite you to my group but your abilities are above and beyond newbie. I would love one of your ATCS and wish I had a fraction of your talent.
