|Originally from Colorado, now in Ohio, I'm a mother of three that is simply on DA for the enjoyment of it. I'm not a professional artist. I'm an author in limbo. Art is merely a way to destress for me. Now I'm off to work on things that need to be finished.|
"i'll be cute for you" by HJLyn
So it says I've been a Deviant here for 8 years, well, that's true to a point because it's more like 12. I started my deviant journey under the account BurntRabbitLucky. At the time I was just a wanderer, liking and commenting until I got my first scanner. My work was mostly Rp OCs and a few random photos. Then I took a break for a while, came back and started fresh - because at the time we couldn't change our name like we do now.
I was a little more serious about bettering my drawings (I'm still working on that!), but photography and fashion are my main interests. I love nature and animals, I don't mind sitting and waiting for a good shot. While I don't have the most expensive equipment (some of my older stuff was done on an old Canon that had belonged to my mom when she was a teenager!) I would like to think I have some good pieces.
But when it comes down to it deviantART is an outlet for my hobbies. I'm in no rush to be good enough to sell stuff. It's just a way to share and destress while enjoying the occasional critique or group challenge.

I love to travel and just speand the day with my camera or my sketch book. These moments where I get a cute look or that just right angle with just the right amount of light... Those are the best.

Of course, as I mentioned, I'm also here to better my artwork. There's a boatload of inspiration and helpful tips all over DA, not only that but other deviants that are willing to offer advice. Thanks to all of that I have noticed a significant change in my work over the years.

I've moved on to host my own groups:
I've even begun participating in some wonderful OCTs, most recently:
And I can't wait for another season of Secret Santa!
When it comes down to it though, deviantART is about enjoying the company and work of fellow artists to me.
