I began drawing around 4 years old on pretty much anything I could get my hands on - even drawing in reading books. I came from a household where practicing art wasn't necessarily praised. Throughout all my schooling years, I continued to get involved with about any art event going on in school, as long as it wasn't after-school (because that may have been viewed as a waste of time).

Now I just mingle with styles, mediums, and techniques, as it fulfills a sense of exploration for me. I don't draw all the time, but the desire to create art comes and goes depending on what's going on in my life. It's something that brings me peace, when that peace is required, and I enjoy sharing my work with whomever would like to view it. With that being said..

Happy Art-Making! :D


DeviantArtist Questionnaire

Journal Entry: Thu Jul 13, 2017, 12:46 PM

  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?   12 Years.  I started on a couple years before I made my current account.

  2. What does your username mean? It's a name of a character that I play on World of Warcraft. :D

  3. Describe yourself in three words. Eccentric, Bold, Misunderstood

  4. Are you left or right handed? Right

  5. What was your first deviation? My first deviation has long since been lost due to moves.  

  6. What is your favorite type of art to create? Traditional/Watercolor

  7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be? Digital Painting/Concept Art

  8. What was your first favorite? I'm not sure, as I have so many that my computer can't load enough to get to the bottom of the list.

  9. What type of art do you tend to favorite the most? Dream-like work or pieces that tell stories.  Traditional work tends to be the most preferred.

  10. Who is your all-time favorite deviant artist? I don't have one - I have several.

  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?  I don't have a specific artist that I'd want to meet.

  12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life? I started following Parororo years ago when he still went by Pyromaniac.  It took quite a long time of trying to start conversation with him to get any conversation, but eventually we did.  Ever since then, I'll send him a note or a poke through social media to catch up a little bit and see how he fairs.  I think as far as knowing someone or acquaintance - he would be the longest online 'know of and spoken to' that I've ever maintained.  As far as how he's impacted me..  depending on my mood or how I've felt - his gallery has always been a comforting place to go haunt.  It was knowing that out there in this big world, someone has once upon a time struggled or felt odd about the world and expressed that into work for others to see and relate to.

  13. What are your preferred tools to create art? Paper, a writing medium, and my brain.

  14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art? In a quiet room, with a window to the outside world, and some light music or nature sounds.

  15. What is your favorite DeviantArt memory? Joining a RPG group where we roleplayed as characters we designed - drawing up the biography, etc for the characters.  It was fun!
