I'm a self-taught visual artist and designer. I joined deviantart.com based on the suggestion of a friend who thought it would be a good idea, and I must say I have truly benefited from the experience because I have now been exposed to so many brilliant artists and communicators. These various ideas and techniques have really given me fuel to expand my thoughts and leverage of visual creativity. Thanks to everyone who has shared!
I love to capture the human form graphically in as many diverse styles as I believe I am capable, so I plan to have much more fun with DA.

If nothing else, art must be interesting. My mother used to tell me "it's hard to be distracted if you're not already focused," and what I took from that was that every distraction is not bad. Art often functions as a diversion that causes someone to take a moment to look at or be made aware of something beyond themselves. Creating art, or a healthy distraction, is the domain of the artist, and exposing that art to the masses requires the courage to handle a response or lack of response. It took me some time to appreciate criticism for what it truly is - a response to a distraction. When you distract someone, be ready for a retort...lol.
I found a art piece by you on Pinterest of a girl with a shaved head or bald. I fell in love with it instantly came and followed your page. Us bald girls don't get enough love, I always get excited when I see artists who portray us. Thank you!
