Ajax the Cat Queen
I just realized that I never uploaded the full-size image of my profile picture, my cat Ajax. She is about 11.5 years old and still as pretty as the first day I met her (when she was just 2 months old).

I'm a self-taught pencil artist. In May 2010 I stumbled upon some brilliant video tutorials on Youtube and decided to try and learn to draw in graphite pencils. A little over a year later I discovered soft pastels. I finished my first pastel drawing in August 2011. Since then I've been busy making drawings in both graphite pencils and pastels. It has been a wonderful experience learning and improving, and letting my skills mature.

I started crocheting in early 2014. It happened by chance: My cat sheds so much that by August 2013 I had collected a box of cat hair. Then I bought a book on how to craft with cat hair and made a couple of finger puppet cats. To make little neck ties for the puppet cats I needed some yarn. So I bought a few skeins of yarn in different colors and since I got them, I figured I might as well put them to use by learning to knit. When I tried to knit my first scarf I needed a crochet hook to pick up dropped stitches. So I got a crochet hook and everything took off from there. It has been super fun making the accessories and amigurumi dolls.

Hi, it depends on what kind of work it is. normally i charge $50-60 +shipping for a 12 inch tall doll, $70-80 +shipping for a 16" doll, depending on how complex it is :)

I love your paintings. I am focusing on the sky for my GCSE Art and have used you in my artist research for inspiration as I'm interested in creating work like this.
