Welcome to the Cracked Egg! This site is operated by myself, self taught digital artist. Mom to 3 awesome kids, age 13, 7, and Katlyn (forever 18).
I have 2 years towards my Fine Arts degree, and I run a digital art shop at Renderosity, Check it out HERE where you can find 3D models, clothing, backgrounds, tutorials, and more for your digital creations. Previously I have worked at an art gallery, and also volunteered 2 years as a Gallery Moderator at deviantArt.com. My work has been published in magazines such as ImagineFX.
I am married and live in the south with my 2 boys, and husband. My daughter passed away September 2014 after the death of her baby (my grandson) who was stillborn at full term March 28, 2014, and it is a daily struggle without her.
We currently have 3 hens, Sophie, Camilla, & Rory, (Salmon Favorolles, White Leghorn, Easter Egger).
We have a couple breeder sets of Jumbo Brown Japanese Quail we raise for eggs/meat, we also have other colors that have just hatched such as silvers, tibetans, tibetan tux, chocolate colors, speckled italian, and more!
We also have a DYH Amazon Petri, a blue front Amazon Rico, and a blue crown Conure Lucy. Lastly we have a rescued young cardinal named Tweaker. He was bitten by one of our outdoor cats after falling out of a nest when he was around 11-12 days old and so far he’s a survivor, he’s been with us for over 2 years! We celebrate his birthday on the day we found him – Father’s Day!
The two outdoor cats we have were my daughters, a ginger named Griffin and her favorite – Lynxie – who she adopted from the shelter when he was just a tiny kitten and she loved him so so much. So now we care for her cats for her, and it’s quite obvious Lynx remembers and misses her. I also rescued a cat at the end of a dead end road who was quite possibly going to die in under a day, she was taken to the vet, and still stays with us, she has been here since July 2018, I could not locate her owner and she did not have a micro chip, she is a siamese mix.
I am also a big GAMER! I have played WoW since beta, also love D3, Fall Out, The Witcher, The Elder Scrolls series, Tomb Raider, Far Cry Series, and GTA just to name a few.
I read – A LOT! My favorite author of all time is…Stephen King. I absolutely love his work, also Dean Koontz, Tim Lebbon, Justin Cronin and Gillian Flynn, Lisa Jewell, and Stephen Donaldson – pretty awesome stuff! My favorite genre is psychological thrillers & horror.
I am a HUGE Gamecocks Fan! Go Cocks!
That is all for now!
