June "Talk About" with the Handmade Division Team!

Heyoooooooo! It's the monthly "talk about" blog that I share with the Handmade Division team!!!
This month's topic is...
“Do you consider yourself only a Single Discipline artist, or do you work in multi media application, and/or draw techniques from other fields to use in the creations you’re working in?”

Well to start, I LOVE creating art, and that means pretty much ANY art. Plus I have a really really short attention span, so there you go! I am in love with metals right now, but my favorite art form would have to be sculpture. I guess jewelry design is really just small sculptures that you wear on your body yes? 
My ultimate goal is to have several forms going at once. Now that I am pretty much creating on a full time schedule, I am going to start branching out soon.
I'm thinking some photography first, then I will ease my way back into a big long term sculpture project that I have had planned out for quite some time.
I also really really want to get into ceramics! And tattoos! And Glass!

Please check out some other artists who are sharing their answers to this very same question!!!
