I think of myself as rather simple and easy-going. The little things in life are what brings me happiness. I’m not materialistic by any means. I love all things nature and find the most comfort in its surroundings than indoors. I’d much rather lose myself in the woods, a beach, mountains, etc. That too can be said about the fellow creatures that roam/swim/fly this earth. They bring me much joy and calm my soul. There is something about looking into the eyes of an animal that speaks volumes.
I find it easy to lose myself in daydreams or an alternate reality to the point I sometimes have a hard time telling the difference. Perhaps that is the Pisces in me. Fortunately for me I have met and married the love of my life that has some how brought me back to reality. He keeps me grounded, at least when he’s around.
I love art of all kinds yet I, myself am quite fond of pen & ink. It’s my passion. I devote my spare time as a commissioned pet portrait artist. The ability to capture the essence of the animal’s personality and attention to detail is my specialty. I also dabble in colored pencil and water-color to add a little color to pictures.
I love a good book and losing myself in its pages. I’ll read just about anything I can get my hands on. From fantasy, thriller, murder mystery to DIY, field guilds and nature books. It doesn’t stop there! The skies the limits! My dream has always been to have an enormous old library like the ones you see in castles or Harry Potter (sigh). Yes, I am a dork.
I’m drawn to the unknown, supernatural, and paranormal. I’ve had a fascination for death since I was young. Where it comes from I don’t know. Investigating haunted places and houses is another interest of mine. Cemeteries have always been my escape to calm my soul. A place of peace and curiosity. Old buildings and places, haunted or not are also a love of mine. They carry with them so much history and mystery.
