Skye Frostpaw (born February 21, 1989) is a furry artist, as well as a fursuiter, living in Central New York. She is originally from Northeastern Ohio. Skye is a female snow leopard, with white fur and a grey belly. Her tail is her pride and joy and is often used as a pillow.
Skye was actually created at random, there is no real meaning behind the name other than the fact that it's a more usual name. Her fur is actually white because of the lack of grey coloured pencils during her creation.
In 2008, Skye was introduced to the fur community via NEOfurs. There she met many friends and started creating a name for herself. NEOfurs is also where Skye was introduced to her baby brother, Eleete_Frostpaw, another Snow Leopard in Northeastern Ohio. They only lived roughly 20 minutes away from each other and soon grew very close, they were almost inseparable. During a meet to try and start DnD, Skye and Eleete came up with the last name Frostpaw together.
Unknown to many, Skye has been diagnosed with a rather severe medical condition known as Crohn's Disease. She has had 3 surgeries since being diagnosed:(2005- removal of 1/2 the colon, the entire ileum, the appendix;2006- removal of a large abscess (about the size of a soft ball);2007- incision hernia repair). This is one of the major reasons as to why Skye does not fursuit for long periods of time and is often not seen running around conventions. [for more on Crohn's, check out CCFA.org]
Skye has recently moved to Central New York, where she lives with her mate Palla. She is currently trying to finish her college education with a degree in Psychology.
Aside from attending conventions and drawing furry art. Skye is a percussionist and loves listening to marching bands. She was head snare in her High School marching band and even went on to play cymbals for BGSU's Falcon Marching Band in 2007.
During her High School years, Skye was actually an avid member of her 4-H club and bred rabbits to show and sell. She specialized in Netherland Dwarves and French Lops. (It is said that her French Lop 'character', Sugar, is based off of her first rabbit. Which was a French Lop named Sugar)
Skye Frostpaw is currently running around in a suit created by Media. She was built in December of 2008 and was received in April of 2009.
