Just about anything paper related. Got burned out on scrapbooking, tho. Not into making "greeting" cards, either.
Don't like nudes, anything even suggesting animal abuse or "Satan". "Wicca"/alchemy/magic is fine and fun.
Least favorite colors are blue, yellow.
Like to go on vacation and take away one element- the sun glinting off a window I saw or the lush purple I saw in a painting, and incorporate that into a piece of personal art for myself.
Want to do some black & white photography and then accent it with paint...
