Do you find yourself taking on too much? Can you not turn down an exciting idea?

I constantly find myself submerged in ideas and concepts that I feel I must finish! I have a backlog of projects I would just love to dive into! My partner and I always say, there is not enough time in the day, but there is never enough time in a week or month it seems...

How do you prioritize a work day? How do you stay focused?

I've been busy with tasks from my day job (though it leaks into evenings quite easily) and I have not had much time for my own exciting projects. Though, I occasionally work on something and post to my Facebook or Tumblr, and I post to my inspiration blog for the time when I *have time* to work on another large piece! It's so important to write down ideas and save them for a later date.

Do you have a place where you keep all of your (dreams, goals) ideas?

I have been up to some things lately :) (Smile) I finished the Dendris Lupus piece for Wilderness, an Auguste Clown Gallery exhibition in Australia. I have been making jewelry, but only for myself at the moment. I have temporarily closed my Etsy shop because I feel I need to change much of what I'm offering and I want to deliver something different. There may not be enough time in a week or month, but I am determined to keep doing what I love, even if it is a struggle against time :L !

Animal Myth, folklore, and ghost stories are very inspiring to me. It is undeniable that we feel strange, often times otherworldly connections to animals. In my work I try to honor the spirit of the animal, the symbolism behind it, and the guidance that they offer.

hi! i saw a drawing of yours of fenrir (credited) on tumblr. i thought you work was stunning and beautiful so i wanted to feature it (with credit, and a bold caption to not remove the description).  if you want me to take it down, i will.  i apologize if i hurt you by doing this, but i see other people on tumblr do it frequently (as long as it's credited/linked) and i couldn't see that you had a tumblr account already available so i could reblog from there instead.  i'm really sorry if i caused any trouble and i can remove them immediately, i just thought others should see your work. i saw someone else comment who did this and you did not respond, so i assumed it was OK, but again, i can take them down immediately.…

Hi, I'm Jenna from the library! :meow: I wanted to find your facebook page (which I did) and in the process, I stumbled upon your DA. I'm shy, so I'm sorry for how quiet I was. I was really glad to meet you though, you're very inspirational for an younger artist like me. :) Anyway, your artwork is amazing! :iconsmilecatplz:

Hey! Thank you! I was glad to learn that a fellow artist was there :) It's cool that you're working digital, I used pen and tablet for a long time. Well, I still do for graphic design.. but someday I hope to get back into digital painting!
