I'm a formally untrained artist from the USA, that has been designing since age 5. My favourite works usually include those that fall into the old masters category, Impressionist, and Pre-Raphaelite. I also enjoy modern design, photography, fashion design, and dark/fantasy artwork.
I am an Anglophile that spends her time between the US and the UK.

There seems to be some individuals that enjoy artwork so much, that they feel they can use the item with or without credit on their webpages.
While i'm tempted to let those who merely showcase my artwork with credit slide, I do have something to request. Please, if you took the time to take my image, and you also took the time to credit me, you also owe me the further responsibility of contacting me via message through Deviantart and asking my permission first. If you cannot be bothered to ask, then you don't have the right to use it. My photography and digital works are not free stockart. I really do not wish to sta

I also am largely disgusted by individuals who use stolen artwork to further their fame and careers on this website -- while the rest of us struggling artists creat
