Sketchy's Profile

About

I've noticed that the older I get the more youthful my tastes become. Eventually I will find myself covered in finger paints and using safety scissors again, I can feel it....Until then I'll still be churning out somewhat grown-up crafty ideas with an essence of the hipster youth we all wish we had twenty years ago....

Because of my impossible to deal with impatience it is hard for me to focus on just one area of craftiness...you will see many projects come and go until I feel I have conquered all aspects of my creation that I can...my best advice: Life is Short, Buy it NOW!

I am an Art Studio major with a concentration in Photography at the University of South Alabama. The photography I am involved in is Fine Art film photography. I run around town with my "old timey out of date technology" snapping away....I…

I am an Art Studio major with a concentration in Photography at the University of South Alabama. The photography I am involved in is Fine Art film photography. I run around town with my "old timey out of date technology" snapping away....I develop my own film and print my own images in a darkroom on quality archival fiber paper. All manipulation is done by hand (that means without a computer) in the darkroom by me. I love working so hard on a print knowing that my time, experience, and knowledge shows in each piece. Through my shop you will have a chance to collect Fine Art :)

One thing I do try to keep in common with most of my shop items are the three R's....Reduce, Reuse, Recycle...I get a kick out of reconstructing a forgotten or "useless" item...I recently moved closer to the beach (Gulf Shores) and have come to appreciate what nature has to offer us...I want to do what I can, even if its small, to help preserve this beautiful planet. Hows that saying go? One woman's trash is another woman's treasure...
