My name is Siara, but online most people call me Dizzy. I was born 1994, I’m female, and I live in Washington State.

Currently I’m studying Art at Cornish College of the Arts.

I have Aspergers (which if you want to get technical is a subset of Autistic Spectrum Disorder). ASD affects the way I see the world around me, which has a huge affect on my creative thought process.

I love to tell stories, so most of my art is story driven. The best stories, I think, are the ones that capture your heart and speak to your emotions. Story-telling is a powerful medium of communication, and I’m of the persuasion that it’s the story-tellers who shape and change the world.

And speaking of story-tellers, I love Jesus, the master story-teller. He’s my hero, my best friend, and the one person I trust completely. My faith in Jesus makes me who I am, and it comes out in what I create. Most of my stories are based on themes like trust, hope, forgiveness, and redemption, things I’ve experienced personally and know intimately.


An Update on Things...

Sun Feb 26, 2017, 9:29 PM

This is just a general update for anyone who watches me. I just wanted to crawl in here and explain why I've been so quiet over here lately.

If anyone watches me over on DizzyMountaineer, you might have seen me hint at my chronic ongoing battle with anemia of late. These past three months have been exhausting. My digestive issues flared back up just before Christmas and they've bled me dry. This past month I've been to the doctor three times and the emergency room once and I also just got over the first cold I've had in over two years. The GI doc suspects I have some type of inflammatory bowel disease, so I'm going in for a colonoscopy on Wednesday to get a diagnosis. It's just a long, annoying, exhausting past few months, which will hopefully get better once the bleeding in my colon is stopped for good and I can catch back up to proper iron levels.

Besides my medical issues, I've had school demands, and then my involvement in both Sybal-Heim and DracoStryx has consumed most of the remainder of my free time. Beached is not suspended, nor technically on hiatus, I just haven't been able to find the motivation to finish it and I can't quite figure out why. I would have posted other art on here because I have a variety of sketches and school work worthy of posting, but I think Beached is what people primarily would care to see, so I've felt guilty at the thought of posting anything else under Chapter 13 is updated.

Anyhow... that's how I've been lately. And I just finally felt I should stop waiting until I had a finished chapter and say something in the interim. Chapter 13 is nearly done besides the opening paragraphs and proof reading so hopefully it will be up soon but I just can't make any promises.
