Bio: Hello, my name is Justine. I have been into art my entire life. I have always been fascinated with animals of the world, especially Herps (Reptiles and Amphibians). As a child I was always into Dinosaurs like a lot of other children, from there it evolved to herps, they were the living Dinosaurs of today.
I have always been around Reptiles since birth, with my first pet being an iguana we had for 13 years. From there it escalated to more frog species, with my pair of African Clawed frogs I had for 17 years. When I later moved out on my own my fascination with reptile keeping grew. I started out with my Bearded Dragon Draco, and my love of lizards became my calling in life.
I currently still have Draco, a Male Rieppeleon brevicaudatus Pygmy Leaf Chameleon, and my pair of Crested Geckos, Peach and Coco. I choose Crested Geckos to start breeding because geckos are unlike any other lizard species. They have velvet soft scales and cute sticky toes. They also are small and don't take up a lot of space and very easy to keep for a person living in a apartment.
Experience: I have taken many art classes at Goffstown Area High School and also attended two animation classes at the New England Institute Of Art. I went for my major in Graphic Design and got my Associate of Science at Hesser College. I have more than ten + years experience with art, and my specialty is traditional animal illustration.
