Hi everyone! Thank you for visiting my page. I am a writer, photographer, and graphic artist. I use my creative gifts to inspire, encourage, and provide a voice for introverts. I created my website and blog artisticmysticsoul.com as a place to share my writing, photography, and artwork. If you enjoy my photography and writing, please consider buying me a coffee on my Ko-Fi site so I can continue to share content. I only average about $0.25 for each Medium story, even with 100 views, so every bit helps! Freelance work like this is my only income. Bio I am an INFJ who loves to connect deeply with people and causes. I am purpose-driven and love to do work that makes a difference in the world. My personal interests include playing music and singing with local groups and songwriting. I play piano, guitar, mandolin, and banjo. Photography I am a fine art photographer specializing in landscape and nature photography. My most treasured shots are of a barred owl and blue heron. Nothing makes me happier than to lose myself behind a camera. When I am taking pictures I feel truly alive. I have a gift for seeing the beauty in all things. From the time I received my first camera at age 10, I knew I would have a lifetime love of photography. If you are interested in purchasing any of my pictures, please contact me via my website for pricing. Pictures are available as art prints or printed on canvas, metal, glass, and wood. I will soon have a Fine Art America store from which to purchase my photography. I will update with the link when that store is available. Thank you so much for your interest! Writing My blog features articles about self-care, mental health, faith-based issues, and sci-fi/fantasy entertainment. I enjoy combining these topics. For example, mental health issues in popular movies or exploring faith in sci-fi shows. I also write inspirational, life lessons, and feel-good type stories. There doesn't seem to be an audience for inspirational content on Medium, so I will plan to share more technical articles there in the future. I plan to share more content related to creativity, photography, and design. I have started my first novel, which will be in the science-fantasy genre. I am also planning an inspirational book that will incorporate my photography. Thank you for visiting my page and thank you for your support!
