Lately, I’ve been thinking about my blog and about posting a little bit more than just book reviews, especially when I want to read longer books. If I push myself, I can finish a 300-400 page book in a week but sometimes I want to read longer books like The Secret History by Donna Tartt (which I’m reading right now). Not only is it over 500 pages but it has a little more “meat” to it and I don’t want to rush through it. I thought that I can expand by blog niche a little bit and do some lifestyle posts, while I read the longer books and that will give me more time to finish.

I have always had an interest in art, painting and collaging in particular, since I could hold a pencil much like my interest in reading and books. I wanted to share some of those here on my blog so I created a page called Portfolio where I will keep all my artwork. I use watercolors, gouache (another medium that’s a cross between watercolors and acrylic paint), ink, and paper. Sometimes I’ll use found objects like buttons or stickers. It’s called mixed media artwork since I use different mediums and found objects, not just watercolors, for example. I hope you take a look through my portfolio and let me know what you think!

Thanks for visiting my blog,
