My Bio
I got my first camera at 9 (110 film) and learned to repair cheap jewelry at 10. Later I graduated to a 35mm and making my own earrings. Many years passed, and I began scrapbooking, digital photography, and learning about fractals from my husband and fellow dA artists. Now I dabble in all sorts of the weird and wonderful...putting my artwork on fabric, wirework, steampunk hats, writing poetry, mosaics, making furniture out of wooden pallets, and using scrapbook stuff to make greeting card art. However, my dearest loves are still photography and jewelry making.

Thanks!
This is incredible, Stan!! I love the focus, and the light play!

Same! This seems to be a jumping off point for a lot of different creative tasks. :) Enjoy!
My jaw dropped and Abby made that fangirling noise she makes. (It's weird having a teenage daughter.) This is just wow. Wow.
That's My Secret, Captain
This was awesome. I went through this in elementary school and middle school. Because I had a better experience in high school, I thought it was over and that I would be okay. However, as an adult, it took me years to deal with the residual self-loathing, lack of confidence, and low-self-esteem that resulted from those long-ago experiences. Even as a married woman with a husband who loved and cherished her, I just figured he took me because  he couldn't get something better at the time.

After years of therapy, a truly loving marriage and motherhood, I'm no longer a "broken adult". But I watch out for bullying, both in myself and in others, and I keep an eye out for my kids. We're all unique, wonderful and talented in our own ways, and there is no justification for causing pain in others, for any reason. I won't let it stand, and I teach my kids to stand up for each other and others as well.

Thanks for making this beautiful and painful artwork; it should be shown in schools.
