I used 'hide' my art by giving it away, via postcards to friends and penpals, or simply throwing it away. In a strange way, you could thank the actor Jesse Spencer for me accepting the A-word, as in Artist. It's a rather strange story as how I came to sharing my art here on DeviantART. But if you have the time and/or curious, let me tell you:

I had a bit of an academic breakdown in the Fall of 2008 which still persists today (My emotions are a stubborn one). I was lost and during my initial breakdown but I found artwork pouring out of me like water. Like the years of suppression crying out for recognition.

I've always considered myself a realist. I've always had artsy friends but I could never understand or find tangible value in art. Perhaps it was merely the way I was raised or perhaps I was never confident in my own artwork but who can say what is the truth.

I was (and still am) a fan of classical music turned electric, and I happened to stumble upon a clip on a YouTube of Jesse Spencer playing the electric violin with Mark Wood (an associated act of Trans-Siberian Orchestra). I was amazed by Jesse Spencer, whom I had no idea he was actor in the hit show "House". The way he played the violin stirred my spirit in a strange way, so naturally as a new fan I followed him on Twitter. Eventually, I became acquainted with a fellow fan that goes by the Twitter name "@DarcyViolette". She suggested I join DeviantART. I was apprehensive at first because I didn't think my artwork was worthy enough, however I remember the way Jesse looked when he was playing the violin. He absolutely shined. So, here I am today. It's weird how the little things in life can change your view of certain things.

Yes, I was born on Halloween. And no I am not a witch.
