A digital artist with a bachelor's degree in Art Studio and a focus in Electronic Art.
Other interests and areas of study include graphic design, the Japanese language, aerospace, and astronomy. I'm currently working on a master's degree in Executive Leadership (business).
My preferred art style is anime illustration as its unique charisma peaked my interest back in 1996, and still strikes me as a stunning and wonderful way to use imagination.
I associate myself with the saying, "Jack of all trades and master of none," because there are many things that interest me and that I've immersed myself in, but haven't yet mastered. Illustration, photography, acting, music, various aspects of design, creative writing, martial arts, sculpture, costuming and needlework, cinematography, modeling, astro sciences, and animation - to name a few.

Continuing my master's degree. Slow process, but it's going well. PSA: don't take 2 compacted master's courses at a time while working full-time. That was stupid.
I moved to the UK, btw. Temporary. But I get to hang with you crazy Brits for a while while you figure out your Brexit deal. I'm loving the pound value at the moment.
And despite the harsh start to this journal, I still love you all. There's a lot going on, and I'm not always chipper; however, I'm endlessly thankful for your support and the unique parts you have to play in our world.
Here's to another year~!
