My Bio

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! :heart:

If you have any inquiries concerning my creations, please do not hesitate to send me a message.

Art Feature, July 2020

Art Feature, July 2020

Time for another feature! Here are some of my favourite works that I've collected throughout June. Some of you may have already been notified that I added your work to my "To be featured" folder. So much for being inconspicuous! It turns out that Deviant Art notifies artists when you copy their art to another favourites folder (even though it was already in your favourites to begin with)! I guess I'll have to be more clever next time. Anyway, I hope everyone is doing well and staying safe. Hopefully this feature provides inspiration and acknowledgement to the many wonderful artists out there! Some of my latest creations: . . . Check out the Canadian rock artist, Sturgeon's Axiom: . . . Favourite deviations from the month of June :heart: Kate

Bonding with Animals Feature, June 2020

Bonding with Animals Feature, June 2020

Well, it's been quite some time since my group, The Human-Animal Bond, has had a feature. What can I say? Life has been crazy busy. I've also been away from DeviantArt for quite some time and let this group go. I apologize for that. And though I cannot guarantee that I will be able to submit regular features going forward, I will try my best. After all, this group is a hobby and I greatly enjoy collecting artwork which captures the bonds between people and animals. About The Human-Animal Bond Group: This group's focus is on the unconditional bonds that exist in real or imaginary form between people (or human-like forms) and the creatures of this Earth or beyond. Such bonds exist through kinship, connection, companionship, love, spirituality, magic, death and so on and it is this group's mission to portray all these bonds in their entirety and overall beauty. I welcome all of you to take a moment to view these beautiful works of art:

Art Feature, June 2020

Greetings, It's been quite some time since I submitted new deviations, searched new art, or submitted any features. Truth be told, I've been busy, very busy, as I pursue a masters degree. Yet, I've been having that burning desire to create again as well as many creative ideas. And while I am beginning to have some more free time on my hands, I plan to upload new artwork as time goes on. Here are a few of my newest creations: You can now also find me on Instagram! . . . I'd also like to share the following music by the new and emerging musician, Sturgeon's Axiom. Its genre is a combination of rock, metal, classics and even classical (depending on the song). Personally, I find it refreshing. I invite you to follow the link below and have a listen! You can also find Sturgeon's Axiom on Spotify. Featuring new music by Sturgeon's Axiom: "The Boomerang" . . . At the beginning of this month, I began using DeviantArt more frequently again. I've noticed quite the community change and many

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?

MoonlightMysteriaHobbyist General Artist

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! :heart:

Interesting, why people usually don't ask why their work liked to someone:confused:. 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:heart:. 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! :heart:
