About Me

Hello, world!

My name is Jane and I am a multidisciplinary freelance artist. I went to art school in Chicago and fell in love with the city, so I decided to stick around. I love museums and traveling. I also love videogames and cult movies and pop culture. And 80s music. And wearing crazy outfits and silly hats. My favorite pair of sunglasses are my spectrespecs.

Online, people might know me best as Princess Etch A Sketch. I am an Etch A Sketch artist who has been playing with the toy since I was 4, and now I do it for a living. I also do all other kinds of art, too! I've been working as a photo retoucher/graphic designer for ~3 years and have been painting and drawing for most of my life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am fortunate in that sometimes my freelance work allows me to travel. Sometimes I travel to distant cities to work at events. One time, I even got to go to Paris to show some work! I stayed at a hostel and loved the experience, but found that I didn't really have the chance to get to know the people I met because my roommates frequently changed and everyone had their own agenda. I'd love to get a taste of what it's like to actually live in different places - especially because I hope to do some traveling throughout Europe and maybe Asia!

Interests

Drawing, reading, playing with an Etch A Sketch, roller coasters, playing videogames (mainly pokemon though)
