Welcome to Moonlight Mysteria Designs!
I am a self-taught artist from Ontario, Canada who likes to challenge myself and dabble in many mediums - from traditional arts, crafts, photography, to digital design. My most recent focus, however, is jewellery making including bead work and wire wrapping. Though I have taken a long absence from art while pursuing a masters degree, I have returned with a creative itch! I'd like to thank everyone for taking the time to look at my page and for supporting my passion. Stay tuned for my newest creations!
If you have any inquiries concerning my creations, please do not hesitate to send me a message.
No problem! You have an awesome gallery! Thank you for the faves as well!
Thank you very much for faving my "Why did you do that?" work. It's personal to me and important to my characters, I'm glad you like it. May I ask you what exactly made you pay attention to this work?
You're very welcome. And, that's a very good question. I am normally not asked for an explanation Well, there's a few reasons, I guess. One, I've always been interested in mental health and, as a researcher, I am currently studying mental health and well-being from an addictions angle. Depression, suicide and self-harm are usually experienced by those who truly feel lonely, unseen or isolated from others. How we experience and/or perceive ourselves has a lot to do with the nature of our relationships (e.g., traumatic experiences being quite destructive to our sense of self). What I liked about your piece was the symbolic placement of the hands. The person's hands who were cut were literally being touched, held and recognized. A lot of people shy away from these topics or are afraid to acknowledge the reality of pain. What touched me about your work was the human connection and everything it represents - the nature of one's pain being seen, recognized, and the need for more people to actually be listened to. At least, that's what I saw. Art is subjective, after all. But, I hope that answers your question.
Thank you for the watch, by the way!
Interesting, why people usually don't ask why their work liked to someone. Although that's true and they don't ask me too. Maybe they're too shy, how do you think? Anyway, I don't think it's strange or rude to ask a such kind of questions.
Oh, such a really detailed explanation. I even couldn't reply at once, since your thoughts and feelings made me think about the whole this story again. It's definitely what we need in such situations, a support from other people when your own world gets upside down. The incident that ruined my inner world happened almost three years ago now, but I can't let go those memories and pain, they still poison me. When I made that work I felt so incredibly badly, of course not like when the actual incident happened, but anyway at that moment it was the same day, just a year later. And maybe if there'd be more support this didn't happen at all.
For the watch, no problems. I definitely like your jewerly and I also noticed you work with different media, craft, photography, drawing, that's great
Thank you! Actually, I liked that you asked. It made me think which is something I like to do It sounds like you've had a rough time. I'm sorry to hear that. I hope that you have more supports now than you did then. I hope you have people you can talk to when you have those memories. And, I truly hope that your art is aiding in your healing process! I know, for me, it helps keep my mind off grief or other things. And art in itself, I think, can help restore connections with ourselves and others. I try to remind myself of that from time to time. I hope you keep creating!
