I'm a small time hobby artist who might get in deeper, if not over my head, in art school.

I'm twenty-five with red hair and big brown eyes, I studied to be a police officer until I was injured in a car wreck, I live in a big duplex with my non-nuclear family and love every minute of our sometimes whirlwind lives.

My favorite "storytellers" are Walt Disney and Hayao Miyazaki.  I'm a huge fan of anything Miyazaki puts out, especially Howl's Moving Castle and Spirited Away.  I'm deeply inspired by their works and have been since I was a child. 

Speaking of children, should I ever get more involved in art, that's the direction I plan to take it in; children's illustratrion.  I was fortunate enough to grow up with some of the best books that have shaped my world and still hold a special place in my heart to this day, I can only hope that maybe one day, I could give that back to someone else.

    I'm going through a rather nasty artist's block at the time, so I'm going back and recoloring some of my older work, now that, in my opinion, I have better Photoshop skills and seeing what comes out.
