1. What tools do you use?
I'm mostly a traditional artist, I use blue pencil, a lightbox, pens, paints, copics.  I use photshop ONLY to rough up layouts and it saves time and paper but I don't use photoshop for anything else so the program itself is not fancy.  I prefer traditional art.  

2. What do you use to color?
All the digital colors in my gallery are colored by colorists I work with.  I list them with the work.  
The traditional colors are Copic Markers.  

3. Did you go to art school?
I did not.  I was fortunate to have artists for parents who taught me the fundamentals but their styles are nothing like mine.  They didn't teach me how to draw like them, they taught me composition and flow. Things like this.  As for learning I had to figure that out on my own.  I studied anatomy, went to figure drawing groups when I could, things of this nature.  Comics was a genre I enjoyed so I worked to improve in this genre.  

4.  How long have you been drawing?
I am not one to say "As long as I can remember."  I always liked to draw, but it was just something I did not something I WORKED at so I never saw improvement until I applied myself and worked at improving.  That time frame would be 2009 - 2011 ish.  So not too long.  But that time frame is the time I took to really study, to force myself to learn.  Example, I used to hate drawing hands but I forced myself to draw them.  

5. What's your favorite thing to draw?
Creatures actually.  LOL!  I know I have a lot of pin ups in my gallery but I enjoy drawing weird critters.  Manbat, Violator and the like. 

6.  Do you take commissions/What are your prices?
I do!  You can contact my Art Rep, Bob Shaw, here:…

7.  Will you draw my tattoo?
No.  I can't prevent you from getting a tattoo of something I've done, if you do--neat!  Please share on my page and let me see but I will not specifically draw up a tattoo.  

8. Can you come to (fill in show here)? 
I'd love to!  I need some time to schedule childcare and see if I can have a buddy, like my husband, come along so for booking please contact my Art Rep, Bob Shaw, and he can see my availability and try to work that out with you!

9.  How do you do all this being a stay at home mom?
LOTS OF COFFEE!!!  Ha!  And I draw at night and durning nap times. 

10.  Do you reference yourself? 
My hands.  A LOT.  I have a ton of pictures of my hands but my face and rest of me, no.  I will do a pose and see if it hurts but I won't look at myself because I will bust out laughing.  Something I never noticed was I do draw my eyes a lot.  But I attribute that to the fact it's the face I see every day and I love to wear eyeliner.  Must transition since I am drawing them almost daily.
