I am an avid reader, if it has words on it and remains stationery for long enough I will read it. My parents are British and I have spent my life being corrected on grammar etc, and the habit has now become my own. My friends and family complain, bit I correct before I think. There are few other people I know who consume books at the rate that I do and since it is my passion, I am excellent at proof reading

I am 25 years old and living in New Hampshire. My primary skills are in English, writing, and literary arts, although I've recently been dabbling in photography with a growing interest. I can also pick up other skills rather quickly to complete a job. I've been writing for over 10 years. I've done nonfiction articles, essays, and papers; blogs; correspondence; and fiction pieces (i.e. poetry, narratives, short stories, etc). I can produce samples of my work upon request. Personally, I'm a quirky and creative person with a wide and varied range of interests. I love learning new things (I'm a continuous student to prove it!) so even if the topic isn't something I'm familiar with, I'll dive into with the same level of passion and probably bring a new perspective to the writing. As for photography, I usually do more artistic, personal stuff, but I can try my hand at other types as well. I promise that if chosen for a job, I will get it done to the best of my abilityand as quickly as the project will permit - meaning while I won't take my time, I'll take the time needed to do the best job possible for you. This is more of a way to build my portfolio than earn extra money, so I'm eager to look over any job offer! Thanks for reading.

sianMandrake@gmail.com I draw to create magic and fairytale in the everyday, to allow my readers imaginations to soar and find adventure. As a child I built houses for fairies and searched for dragon eggs in my backyard. I know my adventures were given life thanks to the beautifully illustrated books I grew up reading. They captured my imagination and now I want to give that sense of wonder back to the world to the old and young alike. I am a freelance illustrator from New Jersey and a graduate of The Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art. Since graduating I have worked on many different projects varying from storyboards to coloring comics. Most recent projects include working as colorist on John Carpenter's Asylum, coloring cover art for Joseph Maddrey's book 'Beyond Fear' for BearManor Media. Working as a penciller on an art team for the book '7Deadly Sinners' written by Chuck Dixon. http://dirty7.wordpress.com/ and working on several children's book illustration(pencils,inks, and colors). Currently, I am also an Instructor at the Kubert School. I work with all mediums from pencils to digital, although I particularly love working with pen&ink and watercolor. I am just as comfortable creating fantasy worlds as I am doing portraits and give every project my all.
