I am an 18-year-old missionary kid and have been drawing for ages - even before I started writing. Being a perfectionist, though, I don't draw nearly as much as I used to in the past, and prefer writing, because I do that better.I draw with pencils and coloured pencils usually, and occasionally watercolours (which aren't here, though, because the scanner kills them and also because I paint landscapes that look absolutely un-fantasy). I don't really draw many fantasy-related pictures, which is why my gallery is so small. Most of those I do draw are related to my stories in some ways - I hope to improve my drawing skills, though, because more often than not, my characters don't turn out like they should!! I like Theology, history, literature, music (listening to it, and playing flute), various crafts (mainly making cards, jewellery, notebooks; also knitting and cross-stitch), philosophy, reading (a lot a lot a lot!) Favourite movies The Lord of the Rings, The Chronicles of Narnia. I'm not that much into fantasy movies; I like war movies (anti-war war movies ;P ) and historical movies best. Favourite books The Lord of the Rings, The Chronicles of Narnia, Inkheart. I don't read much else fantasy, because actually I prefer classics, especially Russian ones or books by Jane Austen. My very favourite books are missionary biographies. Favourite music Classical, baroque, religious, Enya, Hayley Westenra, ABBA, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Steve Green, Bill Drake, Siegfried Fietz, all kinds of others. Generally depends on my mood or what I'm doing at the moment.
