Valarie The Firebug

I'm an at home mom with 3 beautiful sons. I'm married to 'my inspiration'. I have painted since I was a child and took many courses in figure drawing, but concentrated mainly on the female form. Art is a hobby of mine though my main background is in religious history and counseling. I like to help people to find themselves. I don't see people as they are, but rather like to look at what I see 'inside' of them. I don't see things like normal people, but then what exactly is the definition of 'normal' anyway? I work mainly on 18x24 canvas most of the time which gives me more room to play, but unfortunately makes it hard to scan.Other Great Artists to visit! Shalini 'Silverwolf' Latchman Hillary T.A.

Penance

Over the last few years, my character Orchid has evolved into something a little more fantastic than I had ever intended for her to be. But in that, I found a freedom in my own thinking that has allowed me to evolve on my own. This short story, which is something that I find it hard to do, came from a conversation that I had with my sister Zana recently...Please read it with an open mind, as it isn't meant to make anyone happy.
