12-5-15 I have put swapbot on the backburner and hopefully can start up again at a later date. Feel free to host any of the swaps I have hosted and change the requirements that suits you best.
Hello! My name is Sherry and I am from California. I am 25 and a junior biology major. I was a double major in art as well. I had to drop it for financial reasons. I figure art is always with me and I can go back for it.
I have been with my boyfriend 8 years. Time has really flown by. He is really awesome. We both enjoy and appreciate art together. He is a photography major.
Science hasn't always come easy for me. I was the kid who made little doll houses out of shoe boxes and gave my mom a drawing every day after work. Art was my loop hole out of my everyday life and still is. I failed math, biology and science in high school. I fell in love with science when I became a Lab technician at a microbiology lab. Never in a million years did I think that I would be where I am today. I have now completed physics, general chem, and pre calculus among biology courses. Art will always be a part of me and I feel its what makes me different from other science students.
In between classes and semesters I paint and draw. I love watercolors because its cheap and I can finish a painting in a day. I also love how it dries on the paper and creates a window of the layers below. I have painted with acrylics but it has been a long time. This year I bought oil paint for a course and figured out that I dont like oil. I guess I need to give it a chance still and practice.
My all time favorite type of artwork is printmaking. I have done, block prints, intaglio prints, acid etchings, and lithographs. I love that I can share a unique hand pulled copy with multiple people. I can also spend a lot of time with one drawing knowing I will get more out of it. However, only block printing is a home friendly method. I do not own a printing press, so I print when I can.
Last but not least is my series. I have been obsessed with old photographs. They are from a forgotten moment. It saddens me that people throw out family photos when they no longer know who is in them. I love to take these photos and turn them into etchings, watercolors, cards, and whatever else. I hope to bring light to a life that no longer is recognized, even if its a simple smile or a touch between people. After 2-3 generations, most of us, our lives, and our actions are forgotten.
Music is wonderful! When I'm creating I listen to Andy Mckee and instrumentals.
Other times I like rock, Indie and reggae: Tool Deftones A Perfect Circle Iron and Wine The Weeks Ben Howard Tegan and Sara Kings of Leon Of Monsters and Men Damian Rice The Dirty heads Damien Marley The Head and the Heart Motopony Modest Mouse Ani Difranco
I do like 90's hip hop and rap but a little more picky about it.
AND! Disco is fun and always a great way to cheer me up! Love the patterns of their clothing too from thar era.

I am an unemployed college student and extras cost a lot. Don't worry about sending me extras. I promise to give hearts based on the swap item. I also don't expect extras from you and don't feel obligated too.
likes: I love vintage photographs, and paper goods from all eras. I loove stickers. I also like animals (especially fish, and strange looking creatures). Floral prints and contrasting patterns.
dislikes:Please don't send paper cut outs, confetti, or small paper pieces. I hate opening up mail to discover a mess falling all over. I don't mind glitter (I use it) but contain it please and thank you. I hand draw and paint all of my ATC's. I wont use any pre cut ATC scrap book paper. Last but not least I completely respect everyone religions and beliefs. Its truly awesome. However, I don't go to church and I don't claim religion. I am spiritual in my own way and I like it that way. Please don't send me religious items. I think of god as more of a simple energy. Send nature photos, or animals instead.
I always send out my swaps. I also will let you know if something comes up and I will be late (which has yet to happen). If you message me and let me know before the send date that you will be late, I most likely wont rate you down. I know life comes up. If I don't get anything in the mail I will rate a 1 (which has yet to happen to me personally). If you are participating in my swaps and don't send I will not angel if you haven't rated them a 1.
I have had a case of having to pay the mail man to pick up a swap letter. I have no problem doing so but I will message you and tell you. I wont let it affect your rating because it could happen to me. It hasn't yet but if it does please let me know as well. I can send you some money to cover to charges if this happens.
