Creator of REMusicals
My earliest inspiration for art and drawing came from Disney animated movies. In my teenage years I came to enjoy various anime/manga styles, and also gained an interest in video games. I didn't start animating until I was in college, but only did so as a personal hobby. I was studying art in college, but never had any courses or training for animating.
I grew up on the east coast in USA until 2009. I now currently live with my husband in his home country of Finland. He's one of the main reasons I began animating and has always been a voice of support for me. Online, he uses the alias Jack. During my time in Finland, I continued my art studies at a private college where I majored in the "sarjakuvalinja".
After graduating, I have worked a few jobs through Finland's work practice program. I have been an artisan, translator, librarian, and a creative director. At one point I unfortunately I became very ill and had to take a long leave of absence from work. My condition was very serious at first and required multiple hospitalizations before Crohn's was diagnosed. The disease is now under control and I have made a full recovery. It's only been improving with the passing of time.
My future plans include furthering my studies, becoming fluent in Finnish, and finding a permanent career. I also hope to continue the success of my online art and animations, both for personal pleasure and possibly beneficial earnings.
