DEVIANT AWARD FEATURE 8

THE ARTIST BEHIND THE ART

~AN INTERVIEW WITH MOMOTTE2~
:iconmomotte2:


33M~ What brought you here to Deviant Art ?

A friend who was already on DA gave me the link

33M~Did you always have an interest in nature and animal photography
and when did you start photographing your very engaging animals

Momotte~I love animals since childhood and I fell in love with marmots in 2001 .
Since I acquired a digital camera in 2003 I even want to share photos of animals
that I meet

33M~Which one of your photographs is your very favorite, and I know
that is a hard question, but if you have one, why is it your fav
and how did you capture it

Momotte~My favorite is my dear Bonny, the sweetest marmot in the World.
This day we met with his human family in the mountains.
A magical sunny day Bonny my love by Momotte2

33M~You are a very popular artist here at DA, is there a special way you
manage your time between online and offline activities, and what
are your hobbies if you cannot be photographing nature and
animals. You are also married to an artist, how do you manage
your time so you may have quality time together.

Momotte~I try to combine my work and often come on DA because I met some wonderful people here and I love discovering
the work of each of my friends
DA is a second family for my husband and I and we often come together here on DA
When we have the sun and the free time we go to nature
close to home to meet and photograph the animals too.

I would love one day to meet with the Vancouver marmot, but I have a  fear of flying.

33M~What do you see yourself doing in the next few years in photography
and your artwork.

Momotte~It'll be the animals that I meet.
I try to make photos more beautiful and meet various animals

33M~DA is constantly changing and it is such a huge site with so many active
members, how do you stay visible and and engaged with the DA community.

Momotte~I publish my original pictures and then I have friends very dear
to my heart on DA.
I love to do features in my journal and I try contests sometimes

33M~Is there anything you would like to say to new artists here at DA to give them
incentive and support during the first few months of their new memberships

Momotte~I tell them that DA is a very welcoming community!

****************************************

Momotte came to DA just the same time I did 4 years ago.  
I remember vividly her marmots and was instantly enchanted with
the world of hers that includes many many animals and beautiful
landscapes and well crafted Digital Art and animations that I
just fell in love with, instantly faved and I had to add her
to my WATCHLIST immediately.
I have been awed by her consistency, her love of beauty and nature
for the past 4 years. To be continuously engaged and active
for that amount of time is something to be very proud of.
I have seen her grow from her one main gallery
to now include a Stock Gallery:iconmomotte2stocks:
and a World of Marmots Group:iconworld-of-marmots:
along with many many groups she is currently very active in.

Thank you very much Momotte for your generosity and support
that you have shown me and many other Deviants throughout the
years. Your work is amazing and your love for nature is very inspiring.

And now, just a few of my FAV works from Momottes Gallery, I know
you will love her work as much as I do.....

I think that the "featuring thingy" is one of the best inventions in dA, I got to see so much new and beautiful art and artists. I also like to make features, but just don't have enough time. I think I spend too much time trying to learn a bit of Apo fractals and really spend a lot of time looking at my Dev Watch. :blushes: I am always drowning in messages :cries: :ohnoes:

A few of my real good friends have left DA saying they just were
overwhelmed with the mail and DEV WATCH LIST and had no time
for their own work...

I started putting a timer out and after 1 hour of answering mail and
faving works in the WATCH I go on to take photos and work on my
gallery submissions...

The mail always will be there, and I see many deviants are also starting
to fav the WATCH LIST only a couple of times a month...With summer
coming to my part of the world, I will only have internet about 3 days a week,
we have no water or internet, phone or TV until I get to the city to
upload photos.

PS...Your work is wonderful and I do appreciate you taking the time to
reply, but you don't have to reply to this one...I understand very well
the mail issues...

Thank you M. for the encouraging reply, I know I should stick to some kind of schedule but I am not too happy with rules --even if I created them :no:-- also I am quite clear that dA is a pastime and I should not feel obliged to anything, most of the oppressive feeling is mine -I hate having had such a good shrink :giggle:
I do feel envious thinking of the kind of place you will be for your vacation though, and am already looking forward to all those goodies you will bring back. :glomp:
