Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
I'm an all-round artist currently based in Latrobe, Tasmania. Although young, I have a relatively extensive amount of creative experience; I've dabbled in the art forms of circus, drawing, printmaking, creative writing and stage magic, I practice photography, dance and photomanipulation as a hobby, studied theatre at university and am pursuing a career in music. I play several musical instruments, including piano, ukulele, dumbeg, tin whistles and Celtic bouzouki, I'm one third of Tasmanian inter-generational folk trio Velvet Sledgehammer, and I'm currently in the process of recording my first album and planning an appropriately epic launch tour. I also love chocolate.

Warning: I feed trolls when I get bored! It makes me giggle.
  • Mood: Hysterical
  • Listening to: Gréta Salóme and Jónsi/Maddy
  • Reading: emails
  • Watching: my cat lick his privates
  • Playing: Grepolis
  • Eating: museli with berry yoghurt
  • Drinking: hot chocolate
So, The Day Before the Fair is taking a lot of time, and is basically the only thing in my life right now...but sometimes I need an excuse to procrastinate, so...

...I'm dishing out

Well, I know they don't cost anything, and perhaps maybe people are starting to get over them, but nevertheless, simply comment here and I'll give you a llama (if I haven't already, of course. If I have, maybe I'll do something else nice for you).

Let the stampede begin!...

Heyyy, Tiger!

Sorry for the late response. I did compose an immediate reply, but it was about 1 or 2 in the morning at the time, and so when I accidentally deleted it, it was very deflating, and sleep seemed more important at the time than trying again...

...and then stuff happened and I forgot. :ashamed:

Winter is bloody fantastic. I've been in Hobart for ten days, which was amazing. Met lots of awesome people and found lots of enticing new experiences and events. This week I'm involved in a jazz festival, both by helping to run it, and performing. Winter in Tasmania gets better and better every year! Sorry that summer's so bad for you. Why do you leg it up to Northern Canada or Greenland? That should cool you down...

FOUR KITTIES?! Yes, of course I want one, but I won't. I've got my hands full with Pippin. Plus getting across the Pacific would be problematic.

What's going on with me? Well, apart from my winter adventures, I'm in the process of recording an album, which is a very big learning curve...and apart from procrastinating on the internet, that's about it! My life is consumed by music at the moment...not that I'm complaining, of course!

Aww, no probs, sis! I've been busy and slack with this website myself anyway...I mean, I check it at least three times a week, but I'm not doing enough visual art anymore to justify being as active here anymore...which isn't to say that I never will again, of course. Just have different priorities right now.'s life, anyway? The ferrets all behaving themselves?


Permanent-Insanity Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2013  Student General Artist
Yeah, I hope you get back into it. I miss seeing new stuff from you in my inbox :3

Uhm, my last ferret died last spring actually :C She  got too sick...
Other than that life has been crazy, I've been out of work for a few months now. But I'm now trying to get started on a new portfolio to start up my freelance career. I cant use the work I already have because it relies on stock. But I've got Photoshop and Illustrator CS 6
I wanna get started on logo design and advertisements, and clothing concept work
