I'm an illustrative artist, bone/feather jewelry maker and practitioner of Shamanism. Though I have no formal artistic training, I've been self-taught since I was a small child and art became a serious hobby as I got older. I'm always looking to improve.
As far as my bone jewelry goes, I have always been fascinated with biology and natural sciences and have been collecting animal skulls and bones on hikes and walks for years. As a student of Totemism and Shamanism, I would never harm or kill any animal to create my jewelry; all animal parts I use in my art are found naturally in the wild and cleaned/disinfected with the utmost respect. I also do other trades with breeders or other bone collectors for supplies and always make sure I obtain them in an ethical way. I adhere to all laws and never pick up or possess animal or bird parts that are protected by law.
I'm a gamer and enjoy tabletop gaming as well at video games. I love to go hiking and animal watching in my spare time and I'm a reptile keeper with five snakes. I do not breed my animals; most of my snakes aren't even genetically compatible but are still loved and treated with respect as pets.
I am a transplant from Central Pennsylvania to Northern California and it has been an enlightening journey.
I'm a very shy person at first, but once you get to know me you will learn I have a wide variety of quirky interests.
