My name is Kortlyn. I started college in Spring of 2010 and have gone from a Biology major to Studio Arts major in the course of one semester. I will transfer from my community college to a local university to get my BFA before moving to a finishing school to get my MFA. I have an innate love for animals and get along with my dog better than I get along with people. I own one Beagle, one Border Collie/Labrador mix, and a Dutch Rabbit. I formerly owned five Mallard ducks which I raised from eggs to adulthood. I have recently discovered that I am very good at oil painting. Though I have only taken one painting class in my entire life, my very first painting got selected by a jury to be placed in an exhibition where it can be viewed and potentially purchased.
