While normally a hobby artist focused on creating fine jewelry featuring real flowers and some small bugs (recovered after they passed) immortalized as wearable art, Ink&Bee also is very interested in moonlighting with her true colours - the bright shine of a big ol' nerd.

((Please note Ink&Bee is not endorsed or supported by Square-Enix)).
