I am Kaleidoscope-Kirin.

Kaleidoscope: because I dabble in what feels like damn near every type of art!

I draw. I paint. I take and edit photos. I write poetry. I do beadwork, and am looking into starting my own line of plushies. I knit/crochet. I scrapbook. I like to play around with vector art and face paints.

Someday I would like to try my hand at modeling and portraiture. I would also like to try pottery, and take another wack at making my own clothing with a sewing machine. Fractals are interesting, but from a distance seem too complicated for me.

Basically, I am a jack of all trades and a master of none. I like to experiment and branch out. I am ok with this lifestyle and feel it will be a few decades before I settle into any one realm of expression ...if ever.

I also sing (for fun), and dance.
I have not particularly tried my hand at any musical instruments yet.

If there is one thing I am not, it is stable. I am an all-over-the-place person who changes like the seasons on crack. I'm like a little kid hyped up on sugar in an empty hotel, running around and opening all the doors, just to see what's behind them. Sometimes I find something that catches my fancy for a while, and I'll jump on the bed or do pull-ups from the bar in the coat-closet before losing interest and moving onwards. Metaphorically speaking. And I have my favorite rooms that I come back to time and again. Literally these would be my passions of dancing and writing. In my analogy they would probably be a deserted ballroom, and a small outdoor gazebo in the sunshine with a fountain trickling away nearby.

Kirin: a tribute to my best friend from childhood!

She's not dead or anything, and there was no bad blood, but we have long since lost touch. Nonetheless I have never met such a compatible soul, and I will always miss her. She left a lasting impression, and is a major reason why I am who I am today. She was a ray of light when everything else was tumultuous. Her name was Karen.

Thanks for reading all of this!!
My gallery is more organized now.
Mostly to reflect that I'm no longer so focused on photography.
Lately I've been drawing, writing, and dancing. Mostly dancing. All the time.
More of that to come.
Though I can't really post my dancing, maybe a few photos will be born from my endeavors.
Or a private youtube channel with videos of me showing off I'm actually that good, lol.
But it's a thought, in part because I might be doing it anyways -to get used to performance, and so that I can mark my progress.
We'll see.


I am facing the new year and: 

No deviants said thinking it is going to be shit
No deviants said hoping it will be my most wonderful year yet
No deviants said 1 and 2
No deviants said not giving a fuck!

"Thank you for Faving"

To all those whose works I have favorited, I've done so because it was truly well done work, because I connected with the ideas in the piece, or because your art or message really inspired me in some way.
Rather than thanking me for the favorite, I would appreciate it if you would take a look at some of my deviations, and see if you find awe, connection, or inspiration in my work the same way I found it in yours.
As an artist, this would truly be the most heartfelt way you could say thank you.

An added note:
I am truly sorry that I have to favorite-and-run so much. My busy life leaves me with so little time to appreciate art as is, that I often don't have the time to leave thoughtful or interesting feedback. Please just know that if I have favorited your work, I really do like what you've done -I am not somebody who "likes" everything they see- and it means a lot to me. ...Also don't be surprised if I leave a comment months after I favorited your work. I like to go back through my collections when I have the time -I didn't place it there just to never look at it again :)
