Art student, custom picture framer, severe video game addict. Originally born in a small town in the mid-western United States, she's survived several transplants, having lived in Arizona, Alaska, and most recently, Washington. She enjoys dabbling in a variety of somewhat unrelated hobbies, such as bird-watching, sharp-shooting, hiking, and foil fencing.
She derives artistic inspiration from a variety of sources including character designers (Ishikawa Fumi, Yoji Shinkawa, and countless others), master illustrators (like N.C. Wyeth, Alphonse Mucha), a plethora of online artists, and a handful of manga artists (Hiroaki Samura!). Music also helps the artistic process along, and she indulges in anything from Gregorian chant to heavy metal. Her preferred media include Painter 6/tablet mouse, pen and ink, watercolor, and Prismacolor markers.
The thing that initially drew her to the Suikoden series was the art direction (Suikoden II initially grabbing her attention), and instantly fell in love with the sheer volume of eccentric characters and immersive plot.
