My Bio
I've joined dA in 2004. My passion for photography grew and my community spirit and 'pay it forward' mentality started growing really fast. I love commenting, giving critiques, talking to deviants.. just the entire community!

I received `Seniority on Christmas Eve 2009, the day before Christmas, which was a complete surprise. I never got used to that little tick, and it made me smile every time I noticed it.

From June 1st, 2010, the day before my birthday, to December 1st, 2011, I was the Gallery Moderator Community Volunteer for the Photography > Animals, Plants & Nature category.
On August 29th, 2013, I started my second term as the Animals, Plants & Nature Photography Community Volunteer and this term also ended on December 1st, but three years later, 2014.

On April 1st, 2015, I got awarded the Deviousness Award! :heart:

I also have an extra badge that won't show in the top bar. It keeps me safe from tigers and lions, according to Mathness who made it for me!

Personal Quote: "You're getting as much in life as you can handle."

Deviousness Award

When thinking of hardworking, talented artists who dedicate their time to the DeviantArt community, there are some deviants that come to mind almost instantly. Anoya is one of those deviants. A long-time member of the photography community, Nancy has provided her insight, guidance, and energy for new photographers and experts alike. In addition to her endeavors as a photographer, she has dedicated multiple years of her time to DeviantArt as a Community Volunteer for the Animals, Plants, and Nature photographers, and it is with immense gratitude that we present the Deviousness Award for April 2015 to Anoya.
Awarded Apr 2015
Well, not here to be exact. Life happened. Meanwhile I've been a deviant for over 18 years. That is a hell of a long time. I haven't created any real photos for years, I've been exploring different kinds of arts. Mainly artisan crafts. To get out of my head I need to use my hands on crochet, embroidery, writing.. anything. Or books. I read a lot, but I still don't write. I did however followed a training about writing, and passed. But still haven't done much writing. Just came back from another holiday in Croatia, brought the Canon, but didn't pick it up. I didn't take much photos at all, neither with my phone. I miss the 'old days' on deviantART. Spend hours of hours in the chat, on the forums. Especially the days as a CV/GM. The community was so close! I loved and still love APN photography with a passion. A lot of people seem to have vanished from here. I haven't been gone gone. I've been lurking, so I've seen quite a lot of journals from people telling them they're not around

Hoe is het gelukt om Senior Member te worden?

Door bizar veel tijd op de website te investeren voornamelijk. Veel comments geven, veel werk leveren. En daarna kreeg ik hem 'nog een keer' doordat ik jarenlang community volunteer ben geweest.
