After being prodded into showing my hobby at a gallery and receiving much positive feedback, I was suggested to try Etsy. It seems like a great place to share my love for this world. As well as a diary of sorts, recording the progress I make over this period of time. My hopes for my art is to inject these images with a bit of lightheartedness and humor. These are dark films and I rather like that contradiction.

I also hope you enjoy them as much as I do in making them.

But for now I gotta dangle...
