I'm a simple person who likes simple things like good heavy metal, animals, and my husband. I also adore cheesecake, tattoos, and God. Other than the occasional glass of wine, I'm pretty straight-edge and pale enough to be goth without the silly makeup. Pet peeves include folks who think they've got all the answers, folks who think they're being individuals by conforming to some rebellious stereotype, and folks who overuse digital media like Photoshop and call themselves artists because of it. Real artists have crud from real mediums stuck under their nails.
Art-wise, I've been told my style is "unique" which is probably true as is evidenced by the fact that I can't seem to get anyone to buy any of it (it's for sale, for the record. Just drop an email if interested). Although I've delved some into the digital medium, my true love and calling is for anything that can ruin a pair of jeans and stain a shirt. I'm an illustrator, mostly, but I attempt to paint sometimes. I also love photography, and try to only use cameras with actual film in them (digitals are nice, but manuals are nicer). If I can help it, I also do my own processing and printing. Special effects are also done manually unless noted otherwise.
In case you can't tell, I'm a strict advocate of staying old school as much as possible when it comes to art, but I do try to balance it out by trying new things so I don't become a total fuddy-duddy.
Theology, zoology, philosophy, and a bunch of other things that end in 'ogy', 'omy' and 'ophy'.
Favorite Fantasy/Scifi Movies and TV Shows
Al|EN. I doubt if there has ever been a more perfect movie.
Favorite Fantasy/Scifi Books
I adore Terry Pratchett.
Stuff that doesn't suck. In other words, I can't listen to 99.9% of what's popular these days without wanting to strangle someone. There's absolutely no talent involved if a band/singer doesn't write their own material but only performs it. Sorry.

i just had a look at the fanart section, and wondered if your work got better tha the great stuff, there, then i saw the elf in shadow and about died, absolutely incredible use of technique, it is ispiring and makes us all wish we had the thing called talent*looks back at elf and melts*
PS, an idea, how about an elf staring to the sky looking at the moon like some lost lover?

Beautiful work! I too felt alone, but now I know therte is another photography artist, and I dont feel alone! And its waaaayy too late at night for me to make any sense, so I'm going to stop while I'm ahead. Keep up the good work!

I looked at your work (I didn't want you to cry!! *hands tissue*) but anyway, I must say I'm glad I did take a closer view. You have great talents in a wide range of media, and I think that's essential to go far in art! I wish you good luck, not that you need it...

Thought I'd meet one of my neighbors and I'm glad I did. I don't need to borrow a cup of sugar but instead say your work is great!!! Glad to have you in the forest with me.

Your manipulated photos are nice and seamless, which shows prowess. Your pencils are very good, which shows you dont need to work with photos. Kudos.
