About quitecontrary

On all levels except physical, I am a giraffe. I've been writing since ten, and have an extremely long history of bibliophilia ;)

(the picture is of my cat who is the most elegant feline to have ever existed)

I play viola, violin, and piano and if you ever need classical music recommendations just ask!

My favorite artists are Roo Panes, Owl City, and Sons of the East(not necessarily in that order), and my favorite punctuation mark is ;


Interests

I love music, dancing, art, literature and anything else that would qualify me to be a female protagonist in a Jane Austen novel.


The idea that a poem was a made thing stayed with me, and I decided then that I wanted to be an artist, not just a diarist. So I put myself through a kind of apprenticeship in writing poetry, and I understood even then that my practice as a poet was deeply related to my reading.
