Volunteering

November 2011 I had the honour of being made a Community Volunteer for the Stock & Resources Gallery at DeviantART.com which is hugely rewarding (and demanding!) position - which I cherish the opportunity to experience!

October 2012 - September 2015 Just as I think my magical year of being a Community Volunteer is about to come to an end I am over the moon to be asked to stay on the team as a Volunteer Mentor for a few more years.

Interests

I have been using Adobe products for many years now, most significantly Adobe Photoshop, and along the way I've become proficient with a selection of other applications including 3D Studio Max. I taught myself HTML and CSS coding and developed this knowledge along with a working knowledge of good web design creating my first amateur website back in 1996.

My own personal artwork has developed alongside my knowledge of Photoshop, to the point where I rarely use traditional media unless the fancy takes me. Examples of my work can be found throughout this site.

My love of historical costume and British architectural history are pursuits that frequently find a place in my stock photography.

When not glued to my computer and Wacom Cintiq I enjoy reading sci/fi and fantasy books, being purred at by my cats, taking time out to enjoy my Koi or dabbling in science fantasy and fanfiction writing.
