Yearning for the ability to create in a 3dimensional field was a difficult period of trial and error in a bid to locate the software that would speak the volumes she needed to create. BIONeedless to say that many programs were tried and the majority were unsuccessful. Almost at the end of her quest along came Vue d'Esprit. <br /> <br /> Never had she felt so much at one with the world as she did with this one application. Her mind was writing the volumes as the render's portrayed the essence of life she experienced.<br /> <br /> The turning point came for her in September 2001 when Renderosity held a Vue 4 Contest. Her image entitled "The Pilgrimage" won first prize ~ a copy of the newly released Vue d'Esprit 4. This was the first time she had ever won a CGI contest, and she finally felt worthy of being called an Artist.<br /> <br /> From that point on, her world began to change. She met an amazing array of personalities online, some destined to become her mentors, some her peers, and others friends or fellow artists that would become perpetual sources of inspiration, consistently giving her the desire to achieve to higher levels in her personal work. <br /> <br /> Having the opportunity to learn from some of the greats in the industry; at first through Renderosity and then through her work and friendship with RuntimeDNA & TeamDNA, she discovered programs like Poser and Photoshop and was able to integrate her beloved Vue to achieve the maximum joy possible in her graphics. <br /> <br /> In her current capacity as forum moderator ~ the Creator's Box and 2D 3D Software forums at Animotions and the Vue forum at RuntimeDNA, her personal aim of sharing the knowledge she has acquired is maintaining her ethos that Art is learning as much as possible along life's path ~ be it Canvas or Computer Graphics the result is still the same. Art is 4 Life!<br /> <br /> ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~<br /> <br /> Thank you to all of the people I have met along the way. I will always be indebted to you for your friendship, your guidance and your artwork! <br /> <br /> I look forward to continuing my journey through life ~ learning and sharing through ART.
