The one place I've ever felt happy, productive and sane is in the arts. Whether it's acting, music, writing or visual arts, it feels RIGHT when I'm doing it, and that is an amazing thing for someone like me. This is where I belong, but it doesn't pay the bills as of yet. As of right now my main focus is visual arts, but I won't ignore my other loves forever.

My current projects are:
  • An illustrated children's book involving animal noses
  • A graphic novel centered around a female anti-hero who spends time battling foes with the help of the ghosts of pets and people
  • Monthly vlogs about who knows what (possibly about squirrels, or scotch, or someone who inspired me, or an awesome donut, or world events).
  • Audio bedtime stories for grownups. Because grownups deserve bedtime stories too.
I plan to make progress on each of these items every month. That Lazy Suzan of Creativity will be spinning all the time!

So what will I use your donations for?
  • Food 
  • Bills
  • Tea at the cafe I go to when I want to draw and get out of the house at the same time because I've hermited for too long
  • Having stickers of my art made to give away or sell
  • Motivation and reassurance that who and what I am CAN exist in this oh-so-capitalistic world. Every dollar is proof that artists are valuable.

If you are in LA or will be in LA, your generous donation of $100 gets you an invitation to have tea with me at my favorite cafe for a couple of hours (my treat, of course...but kind of your treat if you think about it). If you are *not* in town but would like to Skype-tea with me, we can do that as well. It's almost as good as the real thing, really. Who knows, maybe we can collaborate on some art for you to take home while we're getting caffeinated!
