Me in a few phrases: computer geek, band nerd, hockey fan, extreme sports nut. I'm a fairly active average young woman, who enjoys having fun and spending time with the people I love. Most of my art is born out of boredom during bad lectures and in between classes. I believe in the beauty of life, and I take my inspirations from emotions and my reactions to my every day experiences. I have a wonderful husband who loves and supports me in everything I do, and I don't know what I would do without him. Currently, I'm a senior at Bloomsburg University in Pennsylvania, and I hope to move on to a successful career in software development and engineering. It wouldn't hurt if I could gain enough skill as an artist to make a few extra bucks there someday ;) but I'm expecting it to be more of a life long companion and hobby. Music is also a large inspiration to me, and I've been playing the flute for 12 years now. On the weekends I can either be found hitting the slopes in the winter time, out blading with my husband, clubbing with my friends, or sharing a blissful moment of silence with my soul mate in the warm solitude of our home. :)
Also, any practiced artists, or just perceptive people, pleeeeeeeaaaaaaase feel free to criticize my work. I'm a self taught artist, who can't seem to get into any art courses before they're closed at the university. So the only feedback I've ever gotten is my own perfectionism and whatever comments I get from my geek friends. Thanks! and enjoy!!!

replies: "lazy?! me?! *gasp* NEVER!!!! errr.. aight.. so maybe I have been a tad... I've been spending most of my time on my sci fi stuff lately (seen it?), and a dopey lil comic strip that doesn't really fit on elfwood. I'll try to update more soon. "

Aight guys. I apologize for not having uploaded anything in ENTIRELY too long. I AM working on another piece... it's just taking me a lot longer than I'd originally expected.
It's my first attempt at coloring/shading and everything in the GIMP, and if you're really interested, you can track the progress at www.sanctuary.org/~dani/images/pixiepool.jpg
I upload it just about every time I save it, so you can kinda see what I'm workin on if you're really desperate for something to stare at.
thanks for visiting my gallery as always!

Very nice art work here! You have a very soft style and you put lots of creativity into your work....you have really good ideas, they just haven't evolved into what they could really be, I see it as that your ideas have out done your ability to draw them.......but with more practice you could really flourish! Dani M. Rothe
replies: "Thank you very much for the kind words. It means a lot when someone with actual talent can offer useful complements I'll definately keep working at it."
