Black Cat

Some personal information:

As of today's date (December 14th, 2006) I am a 27 year old woman, living in rural, Southeastern Pennsylvania in a small town called Windber. I've been married to my wonderful husband, Jamie, since September 9th, 2000, and we have no children. I have a lot of hobbies besides my artwork, including: photography, reading, writing, amateur ghost hunting, collecting vintage weird and big eyed dolls from the 1970's (like Bradley dolls, Emerald the Witch, Blythe, Susie Sad Eyes, and Little Miss No Name + recent creations like: Pullip Dolls, Living Dead Dolls, Krpyt Kiddies, & more!) I also collect anything with a skull/skeleton theme, anything Halloween, gargoyles, cultural and religious items from all over the world (example: Day of the Dead Art), vintage funky owls, Lemax SpookyTown and more! :o)

My biggest passion in life? What truly makes me blissful? Well, I love my art and making dolls, but writing is what does it. I have two novels written -- though the second one still needs me to finish its ending -- plus a handful of creepy short stories. I plan to submit like crazy to publishers and agents as soon as I revamp my first novel, which was started when I was 18 years old. I also write poetry, but it tends to be a little on the darker side.

You can commission any art you see here, or on eBay!

Selling Art!

Selling art on eBay has been the biggest blessing, bringing lots of wonderful people into my life and allowing me the unique opportunity to be showcased on art websites. I love all my buyers as much as I love my little dollies. You know who you are! ;o) Thank you all for being the BEST...because if it wasn't for you, where would I be??

What Inspires Me to Create:
I am inspired by the crickets chirping and the frogs calling out to the summer night. I am inspired by the full moon and the breath of the wind as it passes through the leaves on a great oak. I am inspired by the cool stream running over rocks who've spent their days in a timeless riverbed of sand. I am inspired by love, compassion, hope, dreams, and all the things that make us intensely human.
My Art Comes From:
My love of culture, diversity, world religions, open mindedness, and an unshakable urge to make something out of nothing. I gain inspiration from the Day of the Dead, Meso-American Indian Art, the Goth culture, Spooky Creepy Stuff, Halloween, Mardi Gras, Old Cemeteries, Trolls, Mythology, and Celtic Art.
