deemarie · July 25, 2005 5:15 am

Each month the Renderosity community votes on The Renderosity Artist Of the Month Augusts AOM is photographer, LICORNEDECRISTAL [Muriel Remy]. We congratulate LICORNEDECRISTAL for her outstanding collection of Photography images.
Message2353406.jpgWho is LICORNEDECRISTAL and how did you come by your username? Llicornedecristal is a 35 years old passionate photographer, living the France, in the Seine et Marne region. I am married, with two children who are the joy of my life. As for the origin of my user name (licornedecristal = crystal unicorn), my childhood was filled with stories and legends of faeries, wizards and unicorns for I was born in Brittany, not far from the fabled forest of Broceliande. Later, I created the character of a crystal unicorn to entertain my children. I simply used the same name when I became a member, as a lucky charm. How long have you have you been creating computer graphics? Three years ago, I received my first digital camera as a Mothers Day present. It was a very simple camera, but it was enough to get started and post my first pictures in Renderosity galleries. This is how my profound passion for Photography started. Do you have traditional art experience? [Laughter] I have no traditional Art experience whatsoever I even used to be a nightmare to my Art professors when I was in school. What are you currently working on? Right now, I am trying to improve my skills with Macro photography and Portraits. As soon as I am satisfied, I will be thrilled to share my pictures with you. What software/equipment do you use and why? I currently have a Canon EOS, several lenses, and both Paint Shop Pro 8 and Photoshop to touch up my pictures. What do you think your best piece of work is and why? My favorite picture is Luna my mare. I was fortunate enough to witness her birth. When I took this picture, I could feel a profound harmony between both of us.

Who/what inspires you? Difficult question I would say nature is what inspires me the most. How has this online community (Renderosity) enhanced your work, relationships, and learning? This community allowed me to live my passion for Photography completely. It is such a wonderful way to express yourself. Photography allowed me to become more confident in myself and to progress with every picture. I love to watch the pictures of other artists, and I also enjoy commenting on them. For me, these exchanges are moments of pure joy. Parting comments and/or advice to other Artists? Be creative, share, live your passion.
Because Muriel is from France, and has a large French speaking following, we are also going to provide her questions and answers in French. A special "thank you" goes out to the Vue Moderator agiel, for his help with the translation.
