About me

Hi, I'm Tanya

Writer. Photographer. Witch.

I believe art is a way of life, whether it's your job, your hobby, something that keeps you sane or something that keeps you breathing. The way I see it, art is for everyone and should be all about exploration and experimentation. As a member of the Community Relations team, I'm on a mission to support and encourage you in your creative endeavours. Whoever you are and whatever inspires you, MAKE ART.

Friends who sell handmade things on Etsy! I'm looking to pick a few brains before I set up my shop... 

5 deviants said If you're OK to answer a few questions about your experiences, please leave a comment so I can identify you
2 deviants said Also, promote your shop please! Leave a link to your Etsy shop in a comment and check out each other's shops if you like
No deviants said If you sell handmade things somewhere other than Etsy, let me know where you sell so I can check it out too


TanyaSimpson has started a donation pool!
1,740 / 2,000

Points gathered here will go towards prizes and subs for groups I'm in, thanky donatey miscellaneous goodness and other lovely things for lovely people.

Donations are gratefully received and kindly appreciated but never expected. I tend to buy Points for giving rather than rely on others for them but your support means a lot to me and all the Points I gather here are given back to the DA community. Thank you!

The amount of 2000 points is an arbitrary number pulled out of thin air/the ground/the back of my brain cause there was a box that asked for a number and I never say no to a box asking for something.

You must be logged in to donate.


Don't set yourself on fire trying to keep others warm.
Nothing to do with DA, just a lovely quote I ran into today that I wanted to share with my friends here :heart:
Hello, lovely friends! My husband has a week off work so we're actually getting to spend some time together and I'm aiming to be online a bit less.

Daily Deviations are scheduled and I'll be checking group admin stuff and notes once a day, but outside of that I might be a bit slow to reply to comments, and a bit quieter and less active than usual.

Be good, and if you can't be good, take photos. Actually take photos anyway. Or draw things. Or write. Or whatever art you usually make. What's why we're all here :heart:
First of all, have an adorable kitten gif. Let that floofy little baby soothe your soul. Now, if you currently have access to Eclipse and would like to offer feedback (ideas, suggestions, bug reports etc), here's how to do that (quoted from @danlevs Eclipse Change Log, 6th March 2019).
  • Switch to DeviantArt Eclipse
  • Click your avatar
  • Select “Give Your Feedback” to access our official form
OK, my lovelies? However much we Community Volunteers adore you and want to support you to have the most awesome experience possible on DA, we aren't involved at all with the development of Eclipse. Following the steps above will get your feedback to the people who are directly involved in designing and implementing Eclipse, so that's definitely the way to go.
