Erm...I start most of my sentences with 'erm' or 'hmmm' because I never know what to say! :)  I am still  from North West England and currently living in the Black Forest area of South Germany, with my husband, Michael. I still get bored very easily if I don't have a book to read and still spend way too much time in the cinema. I will never get the hang of German grammar and if I don't start  drawing again on a regular basis in the very near future I am going to go mad. Art is the best therapy in the world. Apart from tea. And I enjoy it (tea too), which is way more important than things like talent. I am inexperienced regarding art mediums and techniques but hope to develop and widen my range beyond mere scribbling away with my water-soluable pencils and chalk-pastels! I'd learn to do computer art if I could afford the software. I am in awe of Elfwood and its artists - you are all an inspiration, keep it coming! I like Drawing (obviously), reading, going to the cinema, walking in the rain, watching television Favourite movies Movies: Pan's Labyrinth, Lord of the Rings, V for Vendetta, Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, Hellboy, Matrix TV: Doctor Who, Red Dwarf, Heroes, Smallville, Stargate, Dead Like Me Favourite books The "Discworld" novels by Terry Pratchett, Jasper Fforde's "The Fourth Bear", The Lord of the Rings, Neil Gaiman's "Neverwhere", Douglas Adams' "The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy" Favourite music Within Temptation, Rammstein, Linkin Park, R.E.M.,The Rolling Stones, Queen
