artist bio

Hello

Little bit about myself and how I got into painting.

I was born on November 16th, 1987, I live in Milwaukee, WI in the Bay View area. I have lived here all my life and I love it. The neighborhood and city offers a lot in the artist community, actually the city does in general, which is perfect for someone like me or any artist. I will admit I am a fairly new painter. I have always wanted to try painting but never have, especially since I have always been a bit of a crafty person. Finally one Christmas day, my husband got me a little easel, paints, bushes, and some canvases. I started painting and was hooked instantly.

I am a little bit of a nerd, and here are all the reasons why:
I love playing video games, my favorite games would have to be the Legend of Zelda series, World of Warcraft, and Fallout series.
I love reading comics, my favorite hero is Deadpool.
I love to watch anime and read manga like Attack on Titan, Soul Eater, and the new Sailor Moon.
I play all kinds of table top games from Cards Against Humanity to role playing like Dungeons and Dragons.
I love to go to different comic book, gaming, and anime conventions and cosplay in my favorite anime or video game charaters.
Something that could be a little unique about myself is I am a unicyclist, and I am not talking about the kind in the circus and juggles, unicycling is a lot more than just that.

artist statement

As you know I am a little bit on the geeky/nerdy side, so I love paint pop culture types like superheroes, anime, video games, etc. but I also like to do abstract and scenery paintings too.

I am trying to figure out ways to be a part of the artist community, but I am not sure how too. Which is why I joined MARN! I thought it would be a great step to get more involved.
