About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Artist/Philosopher/Frog Connoisseur
Location Hovering above Nashville, Tennessee, United States
Introduction Welcome to my musings of Life! I love the fun, simple, kooky and spooky things. Just who do I think I am? An eccentric artist and writer, specializing in odds-bodkins handmade OOAK (One Of A Kind) creations of fantasy and fable, particularly Halloween (my favorite). I work with polymer clays, papier mache, acrylic paints, digital photography, Photoshop, and chocolate pudding. I consider myself a nerdy, book-smart student of Life and enjoy learning from all the experiences of life around me. There's a lot to see, if you learn to open your eyes and heart. Laughter is important! Life is too damn short for drama, ya know? I originally hail from Hollywood, via the San Fernando Valley in sunny Los Angeles, now happily living on 5.5 acres of secluded, mossy woods outside of Nashville. Life is full of magic... Life is good!
