This is Punk Youth Stellar the jay that would never let us be when we were at college in Olympia, WA. He would see us through the windows of our apartment when we would get up in the morning and come chattering and banging on the windows.
After I got back from a trip to the southwest I left some rocks out on the window sill and he stole all of them. And that wasn't enough, he then got into the habit of breaking anything I left on the railing including glass jars that we had out there for plants. It seemed the only thing we could do to stop his behaviors was feed him peanuts daily and hope for the best.
I am a photographer/retoucher and dressmaker living in Portland, OR. I have a passion for fairytale, fantasy, and mythical aesthetics and want to help others find that touch in their works as well! Outside of the arts, I have a love of natural sciences and the outdoors in general. With these passions combined, I like to take my shoots and projects to the great outdoors.
