20 Things You Might Not Know About Me

This blog post is a part of the ’20 Things You Might Not Know About Me’ Blog Tag started by April from Blacksburg Belle. I'm not a fan of overly personal posts because I presume that wouldn't be interesting to most of you, but honestly — that's just my assumption, I don't know whether you'd like it or not! So I decided to do it and see how it goes :) Read more...

Job titles are overrated: My life as a Jane-of-all-trades

Job titles are overrated: My life as a Jane-of-all-trades

What do you want to be when you grow up? When I was a kid, I was changing my answer every week. I wanted to be an astronaut (of course), a paleontologist, an archeologist, a medical doctor, an actor, a molecular biologist... After a while I've settled on the fact that I'll be working 'something with computers'. To learn more about how and why I got into art, read this post. Read more...

Welcome to my studio! This is where the magic happens

For years I've been living in apartments with no room for a proper studio. I've been creating on kitchen tables, balconies, beds and even floors. All my art & craft supplies had to fit in two drawers. I tried to make the best of what I had. Now I have a wonderful dedicated room just for my creative work.
