I'm a life-long artist. Not a professional, but I am a professional crafts-person. Right now I work making truffles, confections and chocolate as well as teaching others about these things.
I've dabbled in many different mediums over the years. I love getting hired to make random things like props, because I love mixing mediums and reclaiming materials in creative ways. Learning about & using sex toys has me wanting to learn about casting in silicone. (Bua ha ha!!) I'm a life-long singer.
I've got some major hesitations to pursuing the arts professionally, because I find that art is such a non-quantifiable thing. I never know when a particular inspiration is going to hit, and it's so personal that it freaks me out to think of trying to make a career out of it. I do love building and being creative though, and find that being a professional crafts person is where I fit in in the world economically. I do side-projects and random freelance gigs that are more on the artistic side.
I want to go to school to learn more about costume history and design.
