I am currently a second year design student at Macewan University in Edmonton. My passion is art and design of all kinds, I have designed tattoos, logos, and am always working on commissions of all sorts. I plan to marry the love of my life after I'm done school and to use my skills to make a living. I enjoy music very much and own a ferret who also keeps me on my toes! You can contact me at if you do not have an account with us here on DA.

Thank you for taking the time to check out my work!
So with a very success year of university behind me I get a little time to myself and play around with a few new toys before the next term. I picked up up some Golden: Open Acrylic paints which are a slow drying acrylic as I wanted to have the option for a longer chance to blend my colors. So far I noticed they do indeed last longer, I tend to lay the paint on thin because im a fan of glazing but i would say I get about an hour or two before they dry to an unworkable state (on canvas). I also picked up a Masterson's Painter Palette which keeps the paint you didn't use on your palette fresh for days, I highly recommend it and will post a link at the bottom of this post. So I have been taking a suggestion from one of my illustration instructors and have been painting acrylics on illustration board, the colors pop really well and I love the fact I have an easier time with smaller details but am finding the board to warp after awhile so I'm pretty undecided on it yet. I have 3 paintings left on my list of things to do this summer and hopefully don't have any issues preparing for my next term, but I hope you guys have a great summer too!
