We do not see things as they are. We see things as we are.
- Anais Nin

I've been on dA since 2005 and a senior member since 2007. I've been a Community Volunteer twice, first looking after Photography > Horror & Macabre (November 2008 - June 2010) and Photography > Darkroom (June 2012 - May 2013). I've also adminned various groups over the years but these days I'm pretty much just here to share and enjoy art.

As well as photography, I manage online communications for an art performance charity, run a little techie business with my husband and am also studying for a BSc in Forensic Psychology. Hobbies include obsessing over entertainment media and literature of a dark nature, writing (under a pseudonym, because I like to compartmentalise) and playing with fire. I share my home with one large man, two small cats, an albino axolotl, five goldfish, a family of aquatic snails and more computers than two people realistically need.

...or what you got up to at the weekend

Hello, my lovelies! I forgot to do a Five on Friday last week because sometimes I don't realise what day it is until it isn't that day any more. It's not just me who does that, right? I had a fabulous weekend of birthday celebrations (a friend's birthday, not mine) on Saturday and some hardcore lazing action on Sunday. It was exactly what I needed. What did you do? Anything exciting, relaxing, monumentally life altering..?

Also, if you comment, you're invited to leave a thumbnail for one of your own recent pieces of work and a thumbnail of one of someone else's recent pieces of work and I'll do a feature.
