A little about me... OK Sorry if this is too long for those with short attention spans who are just here for any shiny images I should happen to post.|
Ok quick version; Female, Living in Scotland, Engaged, Ill, Furry, Bi-sexual, Strange, Big Kid at heart, Loves and owns animals, Loves to garden, Loves to create things, Loves experimenting with her camera.
Longer version (Which will get worked on over time)
I live in a smallish village outside the City of Stirling, in Central Scotland. Its a place surrounded by hills and lots of varied environments I can explore on foot and with my camera. Originally from Teesside in North East England, I moved to Stirling to study Biology at the university there. Work, love, family, finance, health, the usual has kept me here since.
I'm currently engaged to a wonderful man who accepts just how crazy I am, and lets me get on with the various projects I have going. Since we both play with and collect table top war gaming miniatures, this works out well. He buys them, I get to paint them.
He's been supporting me in my desire to get better at visual arts by buying my not one but 2 Wacon oversize A4 graphic tablets in the years I've been with him. He also puts up with the various arts and crafts materials that stray out of their storage boxes into the bedroom, or standing around whilst I squee away over art supplies when shopping in Glasgow.
Had various health issues through my entire life which have decided to manifest upon me in ernest. I suffer from Fibromyalgia. There's links on my website (Once included) that will explain this condition for those who don't know. This sadly limits my daily life, but I do try not to let if get me down. Something thats not always easy comsiderig I've has severe depression issues since my teens. My depression helps fuel my desire to create as I throw my thoughts and feelings into images or objects to clear my head. To make matters even more eventful I have PCOS, (Another thing linked on my website), which is probably going to stop me having children. Not a great thing for a woman who wants to have children of her own. However friends and family have youngsters who I get to entertain which helps. Asthma and a variety of allergies round out my wonderful health issues.
I've a CD storage box full of my various medication. Dread trying to travel out of the country with it all!
I love creating things. I'm not very good at it, but I enjoy it. Gives me something to focus on, and calm down my overactive mind.
Over the course of time I hope to build up a collection of creaive works of my own. There will also be various photographs of things I've found interesting or cute. My definition of "cute" can be a little complicated!
The styles I use vary and change not only with time, but with my moods and situations. I love trying out new things when I get the chance.
My fiance, his family, my family and our close friends are my support network and help me cope with everything I'm dealing with, which is a wonderful help. Don't know what I'd do without them!
Operating System: Windows XP/& depending which PC I'm using!
