Hi there! My name is Elizabeth, but most who know me just call me Boo. :)
I'm 21 years old and in my spare time I like to dabble in painting, drawing, photography, and video editing.
If you have any questions or thoughts for me feel free to ask or send me a note. I listen to everyone's feedback! <3
To this day, art is just a hobby of mine, but one day I will make it my living.

Current Residence: Nashville, TN
Favourite cartoon character: Android Kikaider & Johnny the Homicidal Maniac
Interests
  • Listening to: The Light Before We Land - The Delgados
It's hard to imagine I've been a member of DeviantART for almost 10 years, and even harder to imagine that it's been nearly 2 years since I've posted any kind of journal update. I will admit, I'm not much to open myself up to the world, and even posting this is pushing myself to give up some personal comfort, but, inevitably, I must do things that go against the grain in order to grow, and I plan on growing. :)

Lately I've really reevaluated my life goals, and found out that being an artist is really what my soul wants. For the past 2 years I've been painting quite a bit more than I used to, as art has always been something I've been interested in since a young age. Recently I've attended a couple minor music festivals, and I've brought a few pieces of my art with me and showed them to other festival goers, and from the response, I've really gained a confidence boost in my ability as an artist with the whole ordeal. Since then, I've been perfecting my style (although, I still don't think I really have a "style"), and have been producing a lot more artwork than I've ever done before.

To get down to the point, I have created a Facebook page at: www.facebook.com/psychedelic.a…,so if you like my art, I would greatly appreciate it if you visited and liked my page. :)

On another note, I've also been invited to showcase my digital art at an event called RAW: Nashville Presents AXIS on October 23rd. If anyone is from the Nashville, TN, USA area, or if anyone would like to support my art in general (even if you can't go, purchasing a ticket will help my admission costs and help get my art out there!), please visit www.rawartists.org/elizabethfe… and just click on the link that says "Buy a Ticket for this Artist" to purchase a ticket. If you did that, I would be extremely grateful, as money is tight since my husband and I have just moved to Nashville one month ago and are still trying to situate ourselves financial wise.

At this point in my life, being a member of DeviantART has helped me pursue my talent from a hobby, into a potential career, and what I anticipate for the future is more than I would have ever dreamed just 2 years ago. It really has been an eye opener, and I will say this, if you are passionate about what you do, please, beyond all doubt (as I've doubted myself many times before, but the only person who stands between you are your dreams, is yourself), you must believe in yourself. This has been a concept I've been battling for years, since my greatest weakness has been self doubt in this chapter of my life. All I can say is, believe in what you love, even if you think nobody else does, because if you don't, nobody will.
If you read this all, I thank you kindly. I also thank all of my followers who have been loyal to me in my growth as an artist. I really want to do more than I've ever done before, and I think this is a good start. :)

Thanks, Andrew! :) I've been trying really hard to hone my skills so I can start my life as an artist. Moving to Nashville was the first big step I took and it's been fantastic since. ^^ Your support means a lot, so I thank you for the faves and watch! :hug:

Haha, my pleasure! I'm kinda in the same boat, trying to get my art out there in a form people will support... It's tough, but perseverance wins in the end, right? :D

Exactly! You just gotta keep pushing, even when things don't look like they're going in the right direction. Nobody ever got anywhere without making that extra effort! If you attend music festivals (smaller ones with less strict regulations on small-scale selling), you should try bringing some stuff with to share and sell with those around you. I did that one year and had a great response. Stickers work best so if you can get stickers printed you should add that to what you may sell. Anyways, I could ramble all day, so I'll cut short and wish you the best of luck on your journey! :)

Thanks! I've really been pushing myself because I want to pursue my career as an artist, but in order to do so you need to be active and always creating! Things are really looking up as I've been accepted to show my digital paintings at a showcase in Nashville, so that has been a huge motivator for me. :)
