Want Your Work Seen on DA?
Recently I wrote a journal aimed at one of the most often asked questions I am asked...."How can I get my images seen on DA?", "How come no one ever comments on my work?", "Why doesn't anyone like my work", "How come no one fav's my work or watches me?". So if you have ever asked yourself these questions, then this is for you!

Community Relations - August 2009

deviantART's Community Relations Team provides a unique collective effort that seeks to create and sustain collaborative relationships among deviants and to develop innovative opportunities within the global art industry. These relationships are meant to provide and encourage opportunities to foster creative genius.  The CR Team acts as a window of information for the community on how to utilize deviantART in a way that will empower and enable themselves as respected and successful artists.
Our ultimate vision is a community of artists that come together unified and strengthened by sharing the belief that they hold the artistic power to create and shape their own success.  In order to realize our vision,  our mission must be to exceed the expectations of our community, whom we view as partners, and we will accomplish this by committing to our shared core values. Our core values are listed in :faq84:

Deviousness Award

Deviousness Award
`xerces is a fairly legendary sounding name which is appropriate given that this is a fairly legendary deviant, who in just over 2 short years has contributed close to 20,000 comments on deviations and thousands of other comments elsewhere on this site. In addition to that she has worked hard via her journals and news articles to help educate the community to help keep the galleries clean in addition to her tireless work behind the scenes reporting images that are out of place.
She is indeed an example to follow, and has earned the honor of deviousness for November!
-awarded November 2007

I'm currently saving up my points for a super group renewal for my group Devious-Jewellery. Money is tight for me at the moment as I'm saving to move house.
Any amount- big or small- is welcome, and deviants donating will get featured in my journal as a small 'thank you'.

Much too long..

Hello folks!
Yes, it's been far, far too long since I was around in these neck of the woods for more than a fleeting moment!
I've been busying myself with two jobs and a homelife, meaning I have little time to squeeze in those 5-hour long commenting sessions. Unfortunately, I'm a few thousand messages behind, as deviantART is adamant that my commenting is spam! Alas, it means I get to say a lot less on here than I wish to, but c'est la vie.

Anyway, since my last journal entry back in August 2011, my life has rather changed slightly. I now own a house, and not only have I got my full time job as before, I'm also juggling it with my small jewellery business. It's not a huge earner, and I'm far from quitting my day job, but then it's helping me to save for important things like decorating and fixing up my home.

Hello there! I am from the good ole' UK. I am a photographer and jewellery crafter

I've been on deviantART since June 2005. I got a seniorship in October 2007 and a deviousness award in November 2007. I was accepted into the MN@ team in September 2008 until June 2011, so I am a very proud member.

On deviantART, I am a keen photographer and horror SFX artist, as well as a long-time supporter of the other artists around.

In my other time, I work as a geologist, meaning if I throw a rock your way, I'll be able to tell you what rock it is, and how good it is for holding oil. But yeah- it won't be that much of a consolation if it hits you.

I also have my own business in the making, selling jewellery and accessories. At the moment, my work can be found on Etsy at Xerces Art on Etsy, and some items are also currently on sale at Firefly Shiny Shop, Wrexham , North Wales, UK


Current Age: Not bothered to keep updating this as the years go by, Current Residence: United Kingdom, Favourite genre of music: Rock/metal, Favourite style of art: Horror and Nature Photography, Skin of choice: Human flesh...
