Born and raised in British Columbia (high school in Alberta), I have been living in the Kootenays for the last 7 years. In this time my artistic side has exploded! I have been so lucky to find jobs that I love and that let me be inspired; with my outward appearance and my 'night' life. My second biggest passion is cannabis and being the manager of a gigantic headshop was the perfect lead into receptionist/budtender at the local medical marijuana dispensary, "CannaClinic" - where you can view some of my 'on canvas' artwork! Painting and drawing was where my artists path started but it's certainly not where it has stopped: costume/jewelry making, crazy headpiece creation, modelling, hair design, make-up art, creative directing, dabbling into photography and burlesque!
I cannot wait to share all of my sparkling adventures with you all
As for myself, my 'life'...
Finances are always tough but I'm finally in a house with my four kitties, living paycheque to paycheque, but surviving. I'm at a job that I'm feeling really fulfilled in. I've had so many toxic people leave my life these last two years; horrible boss, bad relationship, and difficult family. But, all is at peace now in my home and I couldn't ask for more! My 'Pizzalord' a.k.a. "MEALS" has swept me off my feet and at the same time grounded me and given me strength to be stable in myself. LOVE myself...
I wish the same for you and all of yours
xoxo Ivy Strange
