Photography is preferred medium, but I have also played a few instruments (best at keyboards), drew/painted (still doodle sometimes).

I love to draw and paint. My favorite mediums are watercolor paints, colored pencils and black pens. I also make jewelry out of glass beads.

What about Hammond organ music? :wink:

I paint, though my muse and I have quite a rocky relationship.

I am a scientist of sound. Basically, I create electronic music.

We are the music makers

I actually fit more than one of those categories. I dance, draw, write, and do practical artistic things like crochet. I've also done piano but it's been a while since I had access to one.

I'm excellent at most things "artistic."

It's doing things that would be practical and make me money is where I fail.

I'm not artistic, I'm clumsy and unimaginative at arts. However, I could play the trombone, and I can blow my harmonica just for my pleasure, without any artistic vein. I like to listen to music that is not pop music. I have a little experience with photography.

Knifey, I love your avatar! I went through a brief phase where I was obsessed with Red Dwarf. Rimmer was one of my favorite characters, next to Lister.

Anyway, I have always been an artistic person - I love drawing, writing and crafts. Writing comes the most naturally to me - I don't have to try very hard for people to tell me I'm good at it. But arts and crafts have taken me years to get the hang of, and even then I'm still an amateur at them. I really wish I could have been naturally talented at those rather than at writing, since visual arts are my true passion.

I start my fifth year of singing in a choir in September (second/melody tenor, as opposed to high tenor).
My crazy hope, however, would be to try the drum set just once; if I stink, at least I tried. The real problems
start if and when I actually demonstrate some talent for hitting the skins....
