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 and am currently a Moderator at Through-a-Lens, a Contributor at projecteducate and a photography mentor at seniormentors.

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, four goldfish, a family of aquatic snails and more computers than two people realistically need.

Do you actively want detailed critique on the work you upload to DA? 

19 deviants said YES! I want as much detailed feedback as possible, even if it's not always positive, to help me improve my art.
18 deviants said I don't mind. I'm happy to receive detailed critique but I'm not bothered if I don't.
8 deviants said No. I post here mainly just to share and while comments are nice, I'm not looking for critique.
5 deviants said Not really. I'm working on improving my art in my own way and would rather not receive negative feedback here.
2 deviants said Definitely not. I have comments turned off on my submissions.
1 deviant said Something else..?
It's been a while since I posted a journal, so I figured I'd take this
opportunity to share some beautiful photos created by people I watch.

Excuse me you are a mod... I am being bullied and don't know what to do.. Could you help me out?
RockstarVanity Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2015  Professional Photographer
I'm not Staff or a Community Volunteer so I can't help directly but these two FAQs should be able to help point you in the right direction :aww:

FAQ #96: Can I block people from interacting with me?
FAQ #238: How do I report people for abuse, harassment, or another issue I think is a problem?
