A hobbyist painter, strangestcandy's day job is in video game development where she is able to combine many of her passions to give the world great gaming experiences. She is a pug lover and avid craft beer drinker.
I want to create only what exists in my imagination, otherwise, I'll just take a photo instead. I paint what makes me smile, and what I think will make others smile too.
