I guess I’m considered an ‘outsider’ artist. I have no formal training and have only recently (late ’07) been confident enough in my work to start putting it out there.

I started with Etsy and swiftly moved into many other sites for unrepresented artists. Some good….some not so much.

I have a deep and abiding love of ink…so that’s my primary medium.

Basically I’m a crazy 40something artist/performer/all around creative soul. I am partner and Pain Proof Woman in Karnevil Sideshow and that is most of my life right now. I am also the main artist in Karnevil Kreations, making banners and patches and other art for not only our troupe but bands, other sideshows and even companies as well.

I love cats and coffee.

www.karnevil.net is our troupe site, but I’m really bad at keeping up on it.

I thought I needed to ‘buckle down’ after losing my job and not finding a new one. I thought I needed to ‘normal up’ and fit in….but nothing really seeme…
