About Me

I am an amateur artist in Fresno California. I make lampwork glass beads and sculpture and I like to make dolls, do embroidery, work with seed beads and make jewelry. I am interested in swapping beads, artist trading cards, dolls and other interesting things. I would like to find a swap where I could exchange some of my handmade glass marbles and pendants! My artistic influences include folklore and mythology, ancient goddess figurines, and the horror stories of H.P. Lovecraft. I like to do art with morbid and creepy themes and I have made many Cthulhu statues in various mediums. My other interests include science and skepticism, reading comic books and graphic novels, and raising my cute pet rats.

Favorite Books

Anything by Lord Dunsany or HP Lovecraft, and any work by other authors which is related to the Cthulhu Mythos. I like books on occultism, folklore and mythology. I love comics and graphic novels.

Favorite Movies

I like anime by Miyazaki, especially "Spirited Away" and "Howl's Moving Castle".

Favorite Crafts

Currently I mostly make lampwork glass sculpture, pendants, marbles, and beads. I make Artist Trading Cards, some of them drawn and some of them photo-collage type. I like to make dolls with cloth, polymer clay, emproidery and beadwork. I just recently started making Dotee dolls and am having fun with them! Most of the art/craft pieces I make are miniatures so ATCs and Dotees are a good medium for me.

Things I Like

I like to collect Artist Trading Cards, miniature stuff, beads, tiny bottles, dolls, rat-related stuff, dragons, skulls, Dia de Los Muertos imagery, Cthulhu and other monsters, goblins, ghouls, and goddesses. I would like to have vintage-style clippings or pictures to use in ATCs. My favorite color is purple.

Dislikes

I do not wear jewelry very much and I would probably not be able to use stickers. I am not very in to overly cutesy things or religious or inspirational quotes. If given a choice, I prefer creepy and/or beautiful over "cute".
