About Me

Hello friends!

I live with my hubby and two toddlers in Canada along the shore of the Great Lakes. We're so close to the water I can hear the waves when our windows are open, with a quick walk to our beach access I can see if the water conditions are optimal for a flatwater paddle or a surf session. I have a science degree in Biology. I work as a Naturalist leading nature walks and talks. I also perform data collection and other fieldwork on the different species and ecosystems within the park I work at.

I love being outside. Hiking and biking through any green space makes me happy. I adore the lake and I am so incredibly grateful to live right beside it. During the summer I'm swimming in it constantly with friends and family. My favourite outdoor recreational activity is paddle boarding. I've been canoeing since I was a small child, and I'm a certified canoe instructor. Yoga is something I've enjoyed on and off for years. I love the natural world and being immersed in it. So anything nature or outdoor themed is a safe bet with me! 🌿

Favourite Crafts

I've always enjoyed doing creative things. It is really fun sharing my crafty creations with others here. I bound my current sketchbook myself, which was super fun. Recently I learned what junk journaling was, so my sketchbook now has a bit of that going on, not a full on junk journal, but lots of scraps, stickers, tags, and washi added into it.

When I paint I mainly do illustrations with watercolour, but I sketch too. When I want to do an illustration without having to wait for paint layers to dry I colour with alcohol based markers. Usually I draw things from nature, and people. I adore combining those two things to make ethereal being, like mermaids, fairies, or goddesses.

Nudity does not offend me, especially in art.

Favourite Animation

'My Neighbour Totoro' - I adore this movie, the music, the story, the animation, gorgeous! Let me tell you, man is it handy having a toddler friendly movie as my favourite. I can watch it over and over and never get tired. I'm a fan of other Studio Ghibli films as well. 'Tangled' and other Disney films/fairy tales.

'Avatar the Last Airbender' is an animated series that makes me happy. 'Fullmetal Alcamist' (the original and brotherhood) is my favourite anime. These series have a spectacular story with phenomenal characters and character development. Another anime with an epic story is 'Code Geass,' whoo that ending! Gettin' chills now just thinking about it. Highly recommend.

A very new addition to the list is the Netflix original 'Arcane,' based off the 'League of Legends' video game. The storytelling! I can't even, I'm so in love with this series. Imagine Dragons did the opening song, which is amazing.

Favourite Video Games

I consider myself a casual gamer, espicaly now since I'm a mother of small children with little time and I'm not very good, but a gamer nonetheless.

I have to talk about my love affair with Pokemon, the infatuation is decades old. I've been playing it since the very beginning and have played every single one of the mainstream games since. Pokemon doodles often make their way into my sketchbook. I'm also into the trading card game, my husband and I do that together. We're very much looking forward to when our sons can play it with us.

If a video game has beautiful art I'm drawn to it. 'Ori in the Blind Forest' is absolutely stunning. Same with 'Zelda Breath of the Wild,' the world is gorgeous. 'Final Fantasy' has spectacular character design.
