How long have you been doing art: To and from for 6-7 years. I see myself as a hobbyist though, even if I sell some things now and then I am not a proffessional artist, it doesn’t pay my bills.
Are you a lindy hopper, and if so, how long have you been dancing? Yes I am! I’m a follower but I sometimes try out leading. I’ve only been dancing since last fall so I’m still quite fresh, but I love it and I’m planning to continue dancing for the foreseeable future. It gives an amazing kick of happiness to my brain!
What inspired you to make art: Not a thing or an event in particular. I believe all people have a more or less acute need to express themselves, make things or pictures for other people to see. I got the oppurtunity to meet that need through going to art school, so making stuff is more or less a habit for me, a need.
What is your medium: I paint and draw mostly. Right now I’m into watercolours, but I’d work with anything really. Photography, oils, collage, computers, clay, etc. 🙂
Where you hope to go with your art: I don’t know yet. I know for sure that I will always make art, I just don’t know in what scale; if I will be aiming for living off of it. I am actually right now in the process of choosing an education for next fall, and hopefully also a career path. The choise is between full time art, art teacher or becoming a psychologist.
Anything else you’d like the readers to know about your art? I’m into humans and birds. I make a lot of portraits for people I like or as commissions to sell, because I like faces. I also paint a lot of birds, mostly in watercolour.

Are you available to make these for people?
Sure, but I only have a limited amount of the wallpaper I used for the bodies, and originals take some time and work. 🙂 I guess I could print them, if there is an interest.
The best thing I have right now is my DeviantArt page, as a real web page is still under construction. Though it does not fully represent what I do right now as it’s full of old stuff more than new (which I am saving for my future website). Otherwise, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
