Deviation Spotlight

The 'Lanternflies' by septima-severa, visual art

Artist // Hobbyist // Traditional Art
My Bio
Ph.D. student at the Charles University in Prague
I am a zoologist specializing on vertebrate zoology, I am a part of Fish Evo group focusing on sensory systems and their dynamics in evolution of teleost fishes. In my research, I focus on developmental plasticity of vision in freshwater fish species of central Europe, and also work occassionally with cichlids from west Africa.
I consider art being my hobby which I'm unable to give up on. I discovered the oil painting technique at high school and have been practising since then. Although I was born into a family where no one ever created art (nor was the University graduate in any field - except for father), my parents left me be myself, and I consider myself lucky.

Thanks for the fave :D
You're welcome :D I'm starting to like modern poetry that's on DA. It's a way better than that we learnt about at school a long time ago (probably sometimes in the Stone Age) :D
Nick? To je moje alter ego :-D A víš, jak je hrozný z ním žít už pět let? :-D Není nad společnou domácnost schizofrenika.

No neříkej *ďábelský smích* aspoň v tom nejsem sama :D
