Hellooo! my name is Jessie, I am a 28 year old Canadian artist, crafter and lover of odd and quirky things. I have a bachelor of Fine Arts with specialization in watercolor painting, photography, printmedia and creative writing. I teach after school classes at the local elementary schools.
At the moment I'm collaborating with a local pen maker to create one of a kind pens. Fountain ink pens and collectables. I paint the tubes in acrylic and she turns them into working pens! Check out my personal website for ideas and images! :)
I love to travel! Sadly, I don't get as may opportunities as I'd like, but so far I've been to England, Japan and New York! :D Other places I'd love to visit include New Zealand, Australia, Egypt and Iceland, Europe and other "old" places.
