My Etsy Store
I am an artist. I love to draw abstract and zentangle drawings, usually with animal or nature themes. I sell these drawings in my Etsy shop, please take a look! It's also the same style I usually draw my art-swaps in.
I live in Washington (the state, not the capital!) and enjoy the spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean, and the glorious Olympic and Cascade Mountains.
I spoil my Chocolate Labrador dog named Lena, plus I have 10g tank of neon tetras, platys, and a little zebra snail named Gordon. I also have a red betta named Leif, kept separately of course! And now our family has a new member, a 2-year-old Beagle named Cody (a girl). She's a beautiful chestnut color, with black back, and white spots on her paws and chest.
I read tons of fantasy/SciFi novels, and I also write my own when the muse strikes... but I almost never finish them.
I enjoy drawing, painting with acrylics and watercolor, sketching, collages, photography, jewelry making (mainly earrings cus I have no patience for bigger things), art journaling, and stamping. I make and swap ATCs, Inchies, handmade cards, pretty envies, bookmarks, zines, postcards, etc etc. I love testing and trying out new crafts, too.
I am always open to one-on-one swaps, just message me and let me know! I love swapping for different things, or trying out something new to swap. :)
Colors: Green, Orange, Bright Pink, Purple. Plus all bright colors, & peacock-type blues and greens.
Favorite season is Autumn, I just love the smells and colors and feeling associated with it. Orange and gold and red leaves, pumpkins, hot apple cider, fireplaces, fog, mittens, cinnamon and spices, etc.
I also love winter-y stuff, like snow, snowflakes, snowmen, gingerbread cookies, holly, reindeer. I like Christmas, but I don't really like the "cutesy" themed stuff. I don't like the typical "fat santa" but I LOVE the older st nick. You know, with long robes, and more subdued colors instead of the fire-engine red.
Animals: Wolves, dogs, polar bears, tigers, peacocks, horses, unicorns, seals, dragons, parrots, flamingos, Phoenix, seahorses, killer whales, bettas, and cows!
I love all mythical creatures like dragons, mermaids, selkies, unicorns, fae, elves, phoenix, gnomes(cute or not), etc. :D
I adore fruit! My favorites are cherries, watermelon, cranberries, and blueberries. I love images of fruit too; drawings, pictures, photos, charms, etc. And I could pretty much survive off of dried banana chips also. (chocolate-dipped banana chips are the BEST invention EVER!)
Movies/television: Lord of the Rings series, Star Wars, Stargate, Princess Bride, Princess Diaries, The Emperors New Groove, Mulan, Tim Burton movies! All the Star Treks. Superhero movies like Batman, Green Lantern, Thor, Iron Man, Avengers, Batman Beyond, (basically all sci-fi/fantasy), etc. I enjoy anime too.
Flowers: All Dahlias, begonias, and Lilies!
Books: Bible, Lord of the Rings series, Percy Jackson, R.A. Salvatores' Drizzt, Harry Potter, Iron Druid series, The Dark Angel, Hunger Games, Mortal Instruments.
Dessert-themed items, like cupcakes, cakes, pies, candies, hot-chocolate, fruits, etc.
Celtic art and lore!
