I grew up in the Pacific Northwest United States and live there still. Although I grumble about the grey weather in the winter, I find that the gloom has become a part of my creative process. If I lived somewhere warm and sunny I would probably just paint happy subjects. Things being what they are, my favorite topics include the supernatural, myths and lore, the darker side of fairy tales, armchair neuroscience, and nature. I am a devout procrastinator because I come up with my best ideas when I am supposed to be working on something else. My brain and how it functions is a continual fascination/frustration.
When I am not creating art I enjoy hiking, thinking about creating art, looking at other peoples art, reading, playing video games, playing pen and paper roll playing games, making lists, and being manipulated by my cat.
