My name is Tracey. I'm a self-taught writer and novice banner-maker. I'm also happily married (to a man); with two tabby cats.
I'm shy, awkward, opinionated, yet also enjoy making and building on friendships. (Once a rapport has been developed, I do warm to a person. However, we must all be given a chance to shine!) I may not be perfect, but I am growing all the time - both as a person, as well as an artist!
For instance, I have evolved from creating on May 26, 2013; to having submitted my most popular gif, on October 20, 2014!
What's more, I aim to improve 100%, as I continue to traverse this life! (If you're interested, why not consider adding me to your list? Inspiration strikes on regular basis here! )
Speaking of "inspiration"...
My inspirations from are:
My preferred non-DA visual artists are Claude Monet, Disney artists Ruben Aquino and Andreas Deja, as well as writers/artists Beatrix Potter and Maurice Sendak.
In addition, my all-time favourite movies are Classic Disney! I do love a good [Classic] Disney adventure/drama/comedy!
I derive great pleasure from listening to gospel (especially the South African and African American type), as well as light classical and instrumental music.
Moreover, I enjoy reading the works of C.S. Lewis and A.A. Milne. Lewis' fantastic prose, coupled with Milne's charming poems, make reading an adventure! Though separately, of course!
My 'Tools of the Trade' include my imagination, a reliable PC, as well as a whole lot of pluck!
Finally, my favourite historical figures are Socrates, Cicero and Mahatma Gandhi, to name but a few.
I regularly feature artists, as well as offer prayer for those in need of help from a Higher Power - including rejoicing with those whose lives have been blessed, as a result of prayers and support! (However, on a side note, I'm not the type to insist [willy-nilly] on "salvation" for "lost souls". Requests for prayer are entirely optional, based squarely on an individual's needs only.)
If you're like-minded, and enjoy conversing as much as you do creating and then submitting art, please drop me a line! Who knows where a conversation may lead? You may be surprised!
