Progress of personal art projects:
New Centauri ref - 100% and posted!
New deviantart icon - 10% (sketching walk cycle)
Historical Esther portrait - 15% (thoroughly sketched; needing lined)


I find myself using Behance more these days, it's like the LinkedIn for art professionals. Deviantart is great for casual art sharing, but I'll be posting most of my new stuff on Behance for now.
You can find me here!

I'm trying to save money to study abroad this year or next year, so commissions are always open. Even if you read this journal 2 years from now. If you're willing to pay for great art, I'm willing to make it!

If you're interested in my study abroad fundraiser, let me know and I'll link you to it. It's full of great donation perks at all levels, as low as $5.
  • Listening to: the Lemonade album by Beyoncé
  • Watching: Chernobyl special on Animal Planet
  • Drinking: chai tea
Edit April, 2016: Commissions are still open, even though this journal is old :P
Commissions are OPEN. Please contact me via Deviantart, or e-mail. Commissions are only open for USD, or a similar real-life currency (AUD, CAD, Euro, etc.) :D

  1.  Turn around is a bit slow due to my heavy classload for the semester, usually between 1-8weeks. If it looks like it will take longer than that, I will let you know ahead of time and we can talk it out. 
  2.  Turn around depends on complexity/detail level of the commission.
  3. The following prices are a starting point, not set in stone. However, I will not charge any less than the prices shown. 
  4.  Payment through Paypal only, I do not accept snail mail. 
  5.  Please be prepared to offer an alternative way to contact you (Facebook, e-mail, Skype, etc) that you check regularly, as a back-up method to whichever message platform you choose.
  6.  Please do not commission unless you really have the funds. I doubt either of us want to deal with a Paypal refund. :/ 
  7. Payment is due asap after I send the sketches of the commission (or in the case of a sketch commission, proof that the commission has begun.) If I do not receive payment or a message explaining things within a week, I will have no choice but to blacklist you from commissions and potentially take things to Paypal. 
  8. By contacting me for commissions, it is assumed you have read this conditions and agree to them. If you read these conditions and agree, please indicate so when you contact me :D

What I am currently saving up for:
— Bike + parts + bike accessories for a bike, for my friend that is new to the USA - $0/$150
— Owl & bluebird nest boxes + trail cameras for summer ecology scholarship - $0/$800

Pet and People Portraits: Digital files will be made large enough for you to print if you request it, for a small fee (larger files take longer to draw). If you are requesting traditional art (graphite, colored pencil, painting, etc) and would like to own the original, you must pay at least half the cost of shipping. Luckily in the USA, shipping is usually less than $6 for a piece 9x12 or smaller.

Oil Painting:

Note: I am low on base materials to paint on with oil paint, so if you would like a sturdier material than canvas (i.e. a masonite board, slate tile, etc) we can work out how to split the price of the new material. Alternatively, if you have the material already and want me to paint it, you can ship it to me.

Commission Status: Tentatively open for small projects. :note:

A future biologist that has a lot of great artistic ideas, but also a lot of chemistry homework. I'm probably knitting a sweater for someone's pet snake, or napping, or reading about mythology at the moment.
