I was Sharonheit 451 of the Texas Rollergirls Rec'NRollerderby in Austin TX, now just Sharon of Cocoa Petals (dot com). In college I majored in studio art, then switched to fashion design, realized I as more interested in sewing as a hobby, and opened a flower shop. Don't ask how I got there, but the principles of design apply to any media, 3 dimensional or flat, print or web. I started playing around with my mouse and realized I could draw with it and that's how I got here. I'm using the money from the designs I sell here on Zazzle to help fund my never ending need for skating stuff.
I also volunteer with the Spay Austin Coalition here in Texas promoting spay/neuter as the most effective long-term solution to pet over-population and I donate the 10% I make from sales of Spay Austin products. And if you don't think your city has a problem with pet over-population, ask how many adoptable animals were killed at your city pound.
If you like what I'm doing, please help me spread the word. There's a link on the side where you can send the address of my Zazzle gallery to your friends and I hope you do. I am also open to doing custom work, so if you don't see exactly what you're looking for, send me a message and I'll see what I can do.
Thanks for your interest!
