Hey everyone!
I wanted to write an update on things, though you can probably guess from my inactive gallery that there isn't a whole lot going on! I finished my first semester at school, everything went well and I had a lovely two weeks off over Christmas that I spent sculpting and having bubblebaths. I have a few new things to add on here, and several things are now listed on my etsy store. 

School started back pretty much with the same workload we left off with, except we have three extra hours of class this semester. It's really anatomy heavy this semester, with a lot of time spent in the lab. I did my undergrad in Psychology so I am sort of drowning with all the anatomy terminology and have been struggling to keep up, but I do enjoy it and the lab experience really helps.We also have a class in psychosocial perspectives, and our other continued courses (Practice, Mentoship, etc). We don't get a break after this semester, we literally have a new class the afternoon of our last exam, but we also get to start placement in May! Placement/ fieldwork will be a great experience and I'm hoping my workload will ease to some extent, at least in that I'll have more free time on weekends because I won't be having to do papers and assignments. Hopefully that means a bit of art time here and there :) 

I have been finding it nearly impossible to keep up with comment replies, so if you ever have a question or something feel free to note me. I tend to be a little more active on facebook and tumblr so feel free to follow me there if you want! I know I've been super absent and I don't see that changing any time soon (at least until May) but I am doing well, happy, and really appreciate all the comments, faves, and ongoing support from everyone here. 

Thanks guys, hope everyone is doing well!

:wave: Hi everyone, my name is Janine, I'm 23 years old living in Toronto, Ontario. I joined DeviantArt in 2005 after hearing about it from a friend. I am currently going to University, working on my M.Sc. in Occupational Therapy.

When I first joined DA I did a lot of traditional flat work - pencil, pastel, coloured pencil, and the like. I tried digital and did a few paintings that way but have always preferred traditional. In 2008 I tried sculpting, at first using apoxie sculpt and then switching to polymer clay. I thought it was really fun and soon became hooked. My focus has been mostly horses and kirins but I am always working to branch out and improve. I am very accepting of critique and honest comments!

I am generally very open to answering questions about materials and things relating to sculpture. I am slow with replying to comments and am sometimes slow with notes too, so it may take a while to get a reply but I will do my best. There is a FAQ section on my website that answers general things and a few tutorials in my gallery that should give you an idea of how I do things. However, if you have specific questions feel free to note me.

I am currently closed for commissions for at least 2 years while I finish school. I will still be listing items on etsy from time to time.

Thanks for reading, hope you enjoy your stay! :heart:
