Nottingham based artist, shy, short and open-minded daydreamer whose aesthetic is rather stuck in the 1800s (or as much as my bank balance will allow!)
Oil Painting, Live Music, Science, Nature, Books and the Macabre are my heaven.
I'm really looking to meet a similar darkling to myself, with a possibly creative mind, curious spirit and thirst for knowledge. I adore discovering new things and so I don't really mind what interests you so long as there's something! The best conversations in life are the bizarre ones so I encourage all levels of the weird and wondrous
Regarding myself, I'm a fairly quiet person around those who don't know me but like most fellow alternatives, I have a pretty dark sense of humour. I laugh too much when I'm nervous. Music is very important to me and I listen to everything from black metal to classical to jazz to folk, and particularly when painting I use music to amplify the creative side of myself, so variety always yields more interesting results!
When I'm not painting, I also enjoy exploring new (or historical) places, walks in the wilderness, reading, doing crochet, listening to podcasts, playing board games, watching documentaries/films/TV, etc.
I do also partake in the odd spree of PC gaming, but I get easily addicted so it's always a risky business! Still, I'm not opposed to living a semi-digital life with someone
I live a fully vegan lifestyle, however, I respect others' life choices, so will never impose my beliefs upon someone else! On the subject of faith, I'm a total atheist although I'd love to believe that magic exists in some form, there's a definite spiritual creature clawing awkwardly around in me somewhere
Honesty is one of the most essential things I love and live by, and so in keeping with that I will say that I'm hoping to find a long-term relationship, ideally someone to enjoy an odd little existence with in a creepy but beautiful house! Equally as important, I do really want to have a family of my own - not at this point now or in the near future (there are many more adventures to be had first!!), but at some point in life I look forward to raising some little monsters of my own! That would mean the underworld to me
For anyone who's interested in my art, you can find me on Instagram under 'hestertatnell'
On a side note, for anyone who just wants to chat nonsense and add another tragic stereotype to their collection, I'm always down to for making new friends in the scene!
