about the artist

My name is Melissa B.K. I’m an artist, blogger, indigenous and goth. Married to a Dragon Lord and have 2 fur children. Lavender aka Boo! as in ghost and Grym my service/medical alert hellhound. Together they are the Boo! Squad.
I have been into arts and crafts since I was in child, and writing short stories since I was a teenager. I pursued it all my life. It all started with a pencil, paper and a typewriter. I updated my skills in digital and hands on whenever I could.

I received a traumatic brain and spinal cord injury years back. (Caused by other people) So I am unable to work a normal job. I suffer from seizures, vertigo and chronic pain. I am sensitive to motion so alot of reading, writing and drawing can trigger symptoms. However I keep busy with projects here and there at my own pace. It’s part of my brain and eye recovery plan.

about the studio

I started my studio online 20 years ago.
I am a professional digital artist, but also use polymer clay, marker and pencil crayon. I have worked for some large and small business’, done charity work and volunteered in the past. I have knowledge in digital media including animation, audio video editing, graphic and web design. I have done work for clients in Canada, the US and Ireland.

I started my art journey back in elementary school. I took extra courses in digital media and design as well as in mixed medium. Art was my major in high school and college. I frequently upgrade my skills in both areas when I can and are able to. 

My prints are based on my own original anime characters, dreams and imagination. I am a vivid dreamer. I like to work within the genres of native, new age, spiritual, horror, fantasy and the supernatural.

Since 2002 my studio has used 3 different domain extensions. [ gothickangel.darksites.com, gothickangel.net and gothickangel.ca ] My work has also gone under White Wolf Designz in the past. I own Gothickangel Studios, Darknight Manga, Kreature Kollection and Boo Squad.
