Artist and Author AmarA : 
 Right now, I am doing many things.
I am a scenic designer for 
Ithaca Shakespeare and for Tri-Cities Opera. 
I am an author. AWAKE: A Vampire Tale is out as of Hallowe'en.
I am a constant collaborator with 
artist, photographer, philospher, & belovedest, jk.
We are the artists of our patrons:giving & receiving with them to be able to give & receive with the world.
I do not limit myself:
I am a painter.
I am an actor.
I am a designer. 
I am a writer. 
I am a model. 
I am a musician.
I am a philosopher.

I am constantly deepening my knowledge in each, honing my skills in each, and finding how they interact and how they are unique. Perhaps it diminishes my "sale-ability" that I flit between crafts, living wide to discover depth,but I am not a product to be bought and sold, I am a creator. 
I am an artist, 
The rest is kind of a long story.....
