I'm a fine artist who uses oils, charcoal, graphite, mixed media, and photography as a way to keep my sanity present. I have a thing for design, TED talks, Etsy, the natural world, 1940s jazz, veggies, and holistic thinking. I've done the technical illustration gig, had SCSS (starving college student syndrome), and am currently working on preparing for a 1 1/2 year service mission for my church - The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (shorthand: LDS or Mormon!). I play boardgames. I play competitive. I'm goofy as heck with my lil' brother and can't get enough of my kitties and their fuzzy faces. I'd die for my family if it ever came to it...
