Things I like or think are really cool :) I set it to random so that every artwork stands a chance of being seen rather than just the ones I added most recently. Every one of them deserves to be seen more than once on my profile :)

Army Of Teacups!

I can honestly say that this is all Mattsma's fault for inspiring us to do this as she started with the first of them and then I made the second one and then it snowballed... This is the full army of teacups, in order of creation, as of the time of writing - I will try to keep it more or less up to date.

I joined the site in February 2009, not so very long ago but also half an age ago. I have to admit that my start here at dA was slightly less than stellar, though my first artwork submitted here was one I had permission for as it was created using another artist's artwork as the start, the next series of photoshop works were anything but ok. Not knowing that images that I'd found via google were not allowed as a source had a lot to do with them not being allowable art. It was a series of images that together formed a mural of space and planets - it's a beautiful series in and of itself and my best photoshop work but.. quite rightly not allowed by the rules so I removed them as soon as I realised what I'd done.

I got sidetracked by life and didn't create any art for a bit but when I started my insane hexagon quilt I was drawn back as it gave me a way to not have to have a website while still showing my work and being able to write about it - something people I knew were asking for as images posted to imgur at that time did not have comments available.

I started looking around the site after a while, as one does and soon found some quilting groups, other artists and some wonderful things like humon's comics I joined groups and got more settled into the community slowly going from just a member to admin as well. I started suggesting DD's, though not all got chosen - some were not up to the level wanted, some were just more than the CV was able to post during their term - it was fun doing them. later I started doing feature journals too as I felt that this was a good way to make more people's art visible, after all we can ALL share good art with the community.

Chernobryvets is a digital artist from Ukraine. She enjoys painting animals both realistic and in caricature form. Her works are very humorous and largely portray animals acting as humans. She puts a lot of thought into costumes and special details and her painting technique resembles that of oil painting. I guarantee that you will find her gallery very entertaining!

Xyril is a varied artist from the Philippines. He focuses predominantly on digital but his traditional pencil work is also quite impressive! His pixel art is some of the most impressive I've ever seen and extremely detailed complete with shading! His digital paintings consist of solid shapes filled with a gradient for a bold, graphic signa

In the mean time I got back into cross stitching, a hobby of mine that I'd not touched in years, by joining groups and later competitions with my cross stitching I got to know more people better and soon got quite active in stitchingpirates and got even more active within the community. I've been inspired by many with my art and also personally inspired to do more - try harder challenge myself and also to take time off when I need it. The list of people is pretty long so I'll stick to just a few although there is a danger that someone might feel that they were left out that's not so. my bf smallbluemonkey who always supported me. Mattsma and pinkythepink who dragged me further into the depths of cross stitching. Talty and UnicornReality the first two CV's I got to know a little better and who helped me see that suggesting DD's wasn't scary at all <3. Aeirmid and Astralseed who helped me get even more involved on dA - and what a blast it's been!
Mushrooms by Muskeg
Last year I was given a DD for the first time and it was a lovely day once I'd worked out what on earth was going on. And this year started amazingly with fourteenthstar giving me seniority for reasons best known to herself :) The rest of the year hasn't gone quite as well with me having health issues but even so the people here have been wonderful and understanding and though it's slow going I'm slowly getting back into the swing of things and having as much fun as I did before :)

About me
What to tell about myself... I'm cheerful and creative - when I'm in the right mood I create more than I can keep up with so it's always a challenge to finish what I start as I have so many idea's. I don't let stuff like not knowing how to do something stop me from actually doing it - I may not do it "right" in the end but I do get it done!

I'm a mother of 2 boys who are (fortunately) not yet teenagers ;) but are a pair of monkeys who keep me on my toes :)


About saying thanks to favs etc.
I had to make a choice between spending a load of time thanking people for favouriting my art - which always brings a smile to my face and a warm fuzzy feeling in my heart - or making more art.

I chose to stop thanking people personally for the favourites but I do still give everyone who favourites me for the first time a llama badge as a little thank you for doing so :) I hope that nobody feels less appreciated for it but well.. someone stole my time machine :( If you need more inspiration as to why I chose this watch this:… It's good advice for anyone who creates art :)


Do I sell my work?
Sometimes - Not everything I make is for sale but I don't usually mark anything as "for sale" so If you are interested in something I've made feel free to note me. I only accept reasonable offers as making things by hand takes time and materials cost real money, so expect to pay more for a one off item than you would for that mass produced knick-knack you saw in a shop.
