My real name is Angela, my nick name, Alla I chose for myself when I was first learning to talk and couldn't pronounce Angela, it has stuck with me ever since, much to my embarrassment during my school days.
I used to spend all of my time when I wasn't riding horses, drawing them , and was proficient enough to sell some of my drawings to people at the local stables, but unfortunately, in 1994 after having Glandular fever followed by a riding accident I became very ill and unable to even get out of bed for days on end, and my co-ordination became so bad that I couldn't draw anymore ( well nothing worth it anyway).
In 1996 I bought a shiny new Pentium 75 PC, the envy of all my friends, to keep myself from going insane, after spending almost two years doing nothing but playing games and learning how to use it, I bought a computer magazine that had Bryce 2 free on the cover, that was it I was hooked!
The rest is history, I bought Poser and then joined Renderosity in 1999, during the aftermath of the split with Willow and the PFO.
Learning new things with Poser, Photoshop, Vue D'Esprit and Cinema 4D keeps my going and gives me a sense of pride in what I've achieved.
Keep an eye on my website, as I've got several new textures for the Poser 4 horse about to be packaged up and uploaded for free download, my way of saying thanks for all the help and support that I've had over these last few turbulent years.
