You’ll find me across social media as @sk8rcruz , a reference to my former skateboarding and roller derby days. I love using fountain pens and working with fountain pen ink in artistic endeavors. I’m always up to letter writing and swapping Artist Trading Cards (ATCs). I’ve participated in Inktober the last two years and enjoy using watercolors, pastels, pencils, collage, and found objects to create art. I’m in the fountain pen hobby for the community that comes with it! I have a sitting disability following a bicycle crash several years ago (Pudendal Neuralgia) and have been creating a new and enjoyable life despite my physical limitations. I am not shy about my disability and prefer to be an outspoken warrior in a support community For others with this rare condition. Fountain pens and the fountain pen community are now an essential part of my healing process.
