Okay, I'll admit it, my interests are seriously varied!
I'm a make-up artist. I love make-up. I love pink and aqua together like cotton candy. I love glitter and all things sparkly. I love the ability to take someone and change them completely. It's so rewarding to be able to make someone see themselves in a new way. You can see my work here.
From my love of make-up artistry spawned my love of photography. I've worked with many super-talented photographers. But there were some images I just couldn't find someone to capture for me. So, I decided to start learning what I needed to know to be able to take really cool pictures. I am far from knowing everything there is to know, but I am constantly growing as a photographer. You can check out my photos here. I've just recently discovered a passion for shooting concerts...so I am feverishly seeking shows of bands I like. More about that later.
I am also a jewelry designer. I use sterling silver and gemstones. I try to make pieces that are something I would wear. I love using color and finding the most unique stones with unique cuts and facets. I sell my jewelry on Etsy and I have a MySpace page for that too. There are many aspects that I love about Etsy. There are some truly fantastic artists who sell there and I've been lucky to buy and trade with some of them! (I love trades!)
There are plans to open a second shop on Etsy for all of my non-jewelry items. I like to sew, draw and dabble in all sorts of other things! I have these painted dolls I make that are pretty cute! Once I build up enough inventory, I'll open the new shop.
I attended art school at the Moore College of Art and Design in Philadelphia and the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. I have a degree in Museum Studies because I thought it would be more practical than a sculpture degree...yeah, right.
But I ramble on and on.
Oh, I am a sucker for adorable Kawaii goodies from Japan! I just can't have too many memo pads, stationery sets and pens. Not to mention all of the wonderful Japanese candy...ramune-flavored ANYTHING is worth trying!
I promise my future posts will be a tad bit more focused. I just wanted to give you an idea of who I am and what I'll like to blog about.
