Hello, I'm Jayne! I'm a queer fantasy/gothic artist located in the Midwest, USA. I love working with unusual medias and subjects, with a passion for skulls, animals, and florals! Animal skulls are a favorite, but I also work with wood, clay, and classic mediums like watercolor and ink. A lot of my work these days are digital illustrations in Clip Studio and learning how to do wood/lino cutting with printing! I have a bachelors in animation and while my joy for illustration took forward spotlight, I still have a deep love animation which includes cartoons/anime/animated movies. Don Bluth and Hayao Miyazaki are huge influences for me in capturing and recognizing the beauty of life, nature, and the various quirks and uniqueness that each person has to offer.When it comes to working with bones or skulls, a lot of what I use is found myself and then cleaned with with dermestid beetles and then sanitizing/whitening them. If needed, I also source from others, making sure to look for ethically sourced suppliers. It is extremely important to me that the skulls and bones I work with are not killed for their product. A lot of what I found are either naturally found in nature or processed from roadkill.Otherwise, I'm an avid plant owner, animal mom to too many pets, and live on my five acre farm with my bees. I spend most of my time with my daughter, my partner of fifteen years, and my secondary partner of three years! I also enjoy video games, a large variety of music genres, horror movies, and cars which includes the Chicago car scene!
