Dream big, live fast.Dear friends,
Today I had a spare afternoon and thought, "I have been neglecting DeviantART for such a long time, why not write a journal entry?" So here I am. I know not a lot of you probably read this or will comment or even see it, but at least it's here for those who do stumble across it and have time to read it. I just felt like writing.
To everyone who supports me along this winding photography path, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Even if I don't get to reply to everyone who messages, emails and comments, I still always and forever appreciate it more than you would ever know. You all fill me with such confidence and push me through the times when I think, "Why am I doing this?" Thank you, my beautiful army of dreamers.
When I was younger my parents told me that the two most important things in life were "happiness" and "health". And pursuing photography as a full time career and making it into my life has made me one of the happiest little people. I would spend my child

Hello friends!Dear friends,
I'm sorry for not writing in what feels like an age. To think the last entry I wrote was for the New Year makes me feel old, I can't believe how quickly time has flown! Bliss first 3 months of the year with lots of exciting things happening and unfolding. One baby step at a time.
I now officially have a blog: heartful dream Pretty please do leave me a comment over there. I find myself relying on happy little comments to spur me to continue creating blog posts, and I love hearing from old and new friends. [:
What have you all been getting up to since 2011 rolled in? I hope life has been treating you all really well and that you're all happy. Do tell me what you've all been busying yourself with, I'd love to hear what news you all have.
Thank you all for the love, support, comments and favourites. You are my inspiration and I honestly couldn't see myself taking photos without your encouragement. You are an army of dreamers
goodbye 2010.as it is the last day of 2010 tomorrow i have decided that a deviantart journal would be a good opportunity to reflect and write down my hopes and dreams for 2011.
2010 has been deliciously wild. i have had my camera around my neck every single day and it has been the best year in that respect. some days i was out of breath, drained of energy but doing something i was so passionate about kept me rolling on. there have been the low dips too, of course, but i truly think that the positive moments have outweighed the bad.
whether you support me on deviantart, flickr, facebook, twitter, in real life or anywhere else; i thank you now for making 2010 the best year yet. i hope altogether we can keep building an army of dreams and youth to eventually take over the world. thank you for all the support, love, comments, favourites, laughs and new friendships. you have all been stars to me, so thank you.
my highlights have been everything. celebrating 3 whole years with nathan, stargazing on the g
How are you all? I hope life is being good to you all. I'm just dropping by for a quick update. Lately a lot of people have been asking for more actions and curves. After a lot of umm'ing and ahh'ing I have finally decided to release some of my most precious colours for sale.
As a photographer your colours are as important as secrets to a magician. Releasing them is always a huge step into the secret world of how you work and I have spent years playing with colours through curves and actions so I feel they are like children to me.
I have put a few up for sale here: http://colourfulwhispers.tumblr.com/
Surprisingly I have already sold some copies, I had no idea they'd do so well and it has filled me with confidence that my colours are going to loving new homes where they will be enjoyed and used lots and lots.
So if you're interested too then please do drop me a line and let me know!
Until next time!
Our First (Working!) Video.Last night Facebook decided to work, so I put my faith in it yet again for it to bork up this morning. So I'm really sorry that you guys got stupid broken links, that's the last time I try to share anything through Facebook with you guys!
So I've been wanting to film a vintage style video for many, many months now. I finally got onto it the other day and Nathan and I ended up getting some really pretty footage. I spent my Saturday editing it and it is finally done! I may or may not apply for a DeviantART film account, but in the meantime, you can view our first ever film here:
And this is the new and lovely link to Youtube!
What do you guys think?! We'd love to hear your feedback. Sorry that the previous link messed up. ]:

“Some use Ink, I confide in Silver”
— Lauren E. Simonutti
Quote by Lauren E. Simonutti
“ The misfirings of my beloved/despised mind that conspire to convince me to destroy all have rendered me housebound and led to a solitary life. A creature of past, proof, memory and imaginary friends, I am aware enough to know the things I see and hear are not real, but that does not mean I do not still see and hear them.”
For a very long time
Marketing Materials For ArtistsEDIT: Well butter my biscuits, some of my gifs disappeared into the interwebs. I'll remedy this soon!
It’s no secret that us artists aren’t great at selling ourselves. The creative process is so much work it’s easy to assume that your work will be able to sell itself. Sometimes it can, but that’s not usually the case. Even if you aren’t interested in going commercial with your career (and there is absolutely nothing wrong with going that route), it is important have professional materials to present to clients, employers and galleries. If you aren’t interested in being “full time” with selling your artwork, I think it would still be good to consider putting together marketing materials as a means of creating good client relations.
This journal will include a number of things you may need in marketing yourself, but also if you are applying to art schools or for various jobs in art. I would also like to note that you d
Did you know? - Suggesting DDsDD is short for Daily Deviation and is - like the name lets you presume - a daily feature of artworks from different the galleries.
DDs can be featured by Community Volunteers and Staff members.
While browsing it can happen that you come across deviations that you think should be featured as a DD, but how?
First of all you need to take a look at the gallery it was submitted to.
You can find this information in the description area, directly below the artwork itself.
With that category in mind, we are now heading over to communityrelations to take a look at this CV overview. It lists all volunteers and the gallery they take care of.
Beside the overview at communityrelations you can also find the same list at :faq18:
For our example we now need to search for the Photography CVs.

Laying a wash
A wash is a large area in a watercolor painting where the paint flow and diffusion have been manipulated to efface individual brushstrokes. Within wash areas, color transitions are usually gradual and span analogous hues. Laying a wash is one of the most satisfying tasks in watercolor painting. Essentials of this s
