Welcome! Please note that I am currently more active on my livejournal though I try to keep this gallery updated as well. If you'd like to know more about me, you can check there or e-mail me. I do commissions. Please do not hesitate to email me if you're interested. I'm currently a graduate student of computational linguistics at San Diego State University. My favorite artists: Rembrandt, Monet and the other impressionists, Frank Lloyd Wright, John Singer Sargent, Maxfield Parrish, Michael Parkes. My current favored authors: Robert Jordan, Terry Brooks, P.D. James, Madeleine L'Engle, William Shakespeare, Terry Goodkind, Tad Williams, George R. R. Martin, Katharine Kerr, John Irving, Beverly Cleary, Charles Dickens, Neal Stephenson, James Herriot, and J.K. Rowling. Some of my favorite musicians: the Smiths, Morrissey, Coldplay, Sarah McLachlan, Depeche Mode, Live, Travis, Dirty Vegas, the Wolfe Tones, Delerium, U2 and Moby. Goals and whatnot: I want to travel the world, learn judo, learn how to play the guitar and/or piano, take some ballet classes, and learn a couple more languages, at the very least. Random facts: I love the movie Moulin Rouge, am blue eyed, right-handed, I drive a Geo Metro, my favorite color is blue, I have diabetes, and I'm allergic to horses, my favorite animal. (Wouldn't you know.) I hope you enjoy the results of my hobby as much as I enjoy creating these little scribbles! October 2003: Prints of some of my kirins are now available here. July 2004: I added 'Kirin Stars ,' 'Obeisance ,' and 'Retro Hippocampus .' December 2004: I uploaded 'American Centaur', 'Celestial Kirin', 'Christmas 2004', 'Beardsley Mermaid', 'Smoke Kirin', 'Kirin Ride 2', and 'Kirin Queen ' and replaced 'Luminous' with a better scan. 10 July 2005: I got married, so now I've got a new name. I'm still in grad school, so haven't made art in a long long time. When the almighty thesis is done, then I will be back!
