I joined the site back on April 15, 2005. A friend at the time recommended the site to me, knowing I enjoyed drawing and such. I'm so glad that swirV did. I've never looked back.
Before I came here I was just a girl doodling pictures on scraps of paper in her living room. This site (and its people) have turned me into a girl who realises dreams. Travel. Writing. Everything.
This place has always been home. I can take it with me anywhere I go. Whether I'm in Australia, Europe, America, Asia... it's with me. Wherever I am, I know I have a familiar place to turn to.
I've run competitions. I've run groups. I've accepted challenges and collaborated. I've taken part in the community, and the community has given back. Outsiders don't understand, but we do.
I'd like to think in years to come I will still be hanging around here. Even when my books have been published. No matter what country I might be in, or who I may be with, this place will still be home.
|If you have a question, ask. If you want to say something, comment. Don't hesitate to note me, I don't bite. I do reply. I am here to learn and create just like anyone else and I have always loved interacting with other artists. If you indulge in your creative spirit, we are the same, you and I. If you hunt for silver linings, as I do, we are kindred spirits. All of us, we have much in common.|
