A Questionare from DeviantART

1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?

11 years on this account + 3 on my (deleted) first account

2. What does your username mean?

Gloria: My birth name Gypsy: because I've never lived anywhere more than a year (until 2012).

3. Describe yourself in three words.

"Where's My book?"

4. Are you left or right handed?

Right handed

5. What was your first deviation?

HydraHand by gloriagypsy

6. What is your favorite type of art to create?

It varies depending on mood or inspiration.

7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?

I would love to try my hand at sculpting

8. What was your first favorite?

Yggdrasil Totem by Aerin-Kayne

9. What type of art do you tend to favorite the most?

It's all varied

10. Who is your all-time favorite deviant artist?

Seriously who could pick just ONE?

11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?

I've met SkycladGypsy , her daughter PetalsOfAshes and MatthewJohnGeorge formerly known as RAIN2RIVER66

(I've also encouraged my two nieces Nature-Soul and FeonyxFyre to join dA once they were old enough. They are both manga artists and doing well in their circles with commissions and networking).

12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?


Yes! I became 'online' friends with the above mentioned SkycladGypsy and MatthewJohnGeorge . After some time I sent a poem that MatthewJohnGeorge wrote over to SkycladGypsy : which instigated an online friendship between the two of them, which led to SkycladGypsy moving from where she lived on the East Coast to Wisconsin where both MatthewJohnGeorge and I live! So, I was inadvertently their matchmaker and they are both my best friends now :heart:

I will add that SkycladGypsy and I would spend hours late at night both with insomnia talking. We really bonded and worked through some things we were both going through at the time. We are totally soul sisters now.

13. What are your preferred tools to create art?

I love experimenting with different art forms and tools, however I rarely ever go anywhere with out a sketchpad and pencils. It is a necessity as you never know when inspiration will strike, whether it is notes, ideas, a quick sketch, or even words....

14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?

I mostly work in my studio which is an attic room turned studio but I do love to sit outside, especially in nature to sketch.
15. What is your favorite DeviantArt memory?

Oh! Way to many good times here on dA. I will say that the networking on here has made a huge impact on myself and my art over the years (besides the personal aspects). I have met many wonderful, wonderful people both virtually and in person. Some of these connections have led to personal friendships as stated above, others to commissioned work and art opportunities. I've learned, grown, been inspired, and challenged over the years.

Sacred Self, Sacred Earth

Journal Entry: Sat Aug 15, 2015, 12:21 AM
It's been quite some time since I've been dA, 17 months to be exact! I've peeked in a few times, fleetingly. For some of us, who've been on dA for longer, it is harder I think to wholeheartedly leave it behind for good. My profile will tell you that I have been on dA for 11 years.

It has actually been longer than that. I first came here when I was pregnant with my son, in 2001. Back then I had a different profile. I don't even remember the name I used... after my son was born I had little time for artwork and dA during those first years.

I came back eventually, stayed for a longer while - made many friends, collaborated, started groups (before we had the dA groups you see on here today) - networked, made new friends, grew as an artist, found art opportunities - then left again.

So what have I been up to since I last was here? I've been growing and evolving on a personal level and a professional level. I've written some amazing art workshops and online courses. I've had a few local art shows and became the resident artist in a local art gallery for some time.



I've also been evolving my online magazine into a nonprofit (See the links at the top of this journal). Below gives you a bit of what it is all about.

What began in 2014 as a small online magazine is now in it’s evolutionary process. Creative Sacred Living is nurturing its growth into a nonprofit organization and community.

Creative Sacred Living aims to re-connect people through spirituality and ecological awareness to the sacred essence inherent both in our own selves and in Nature, the presence of planet Earth as a being in Her own right, and in the evolution of a science based cosmology.

Recognition of our spiritual connection to nature is vital to the well-being of ourselves and the planet. Knowing and honoring the sacredness of Earth and the life she supports helps us acknowledge our own place within the living eco-systems of the planet. When we do this we can experience a deep sense of belonging that comes from embracing the interdependence of all life.

We see caring for and respect for our Mother Earth, who provides life and nourishment, as Sacred. Through creative thinking, and sacred living we aim to live deeper and more meaningful lives for ourselves and all living beings.


One of the aspects of the nonprofit is an online university. This is the newest stage. We have two courses so far and a few more in the works.



Our newest course is A 5 week online journey for men and women beginning September 1st

In this course:

  • We will explore the sacred relationships we have both within and without. 
  • We will explore ways of nurturing relationship to self, relationship to other, relationship to all life on earth
  • We will learn through inner exploration, outer projection, creative thinking, and intentional living how we can re-vision and manifest a future that includes the sacredness and interconnectedness of ALL life on earth, regardless of culture, status, or religion.

Earth and Self came forth from the same Sacred Source and share a reciprocal relationship with each other.

The well being of our planet and our selves depends upon a healthy ecosphere, and this in turn depends upon the kind of relationship that we as sentient human beings create with Earth and all the life that it sustains.

"My aim is to provoke the viewer to delve deep within each piece and therefore deeper into their own psyche, perhaps observing or experiencing emotions that are not clearly apparent at first glance".

Seeking to reclaim the practices and traditions of sacred art as a tool for supporting connection, spiritual growth, and healing, in re-establishing the traditional connection between sacred art and inner work (prayer and meditation, visualization, and other forms of spiritual practice).

As a workshop facilitator, visionary and sacred artist my teaching and intuitive painting infuses a deep connection to heart, mind, and spirit. In honoring intuition, self-discovery and sacred space I believe that each individual holds healing power within themselves.

It is my intention to guide the seeker to their own inner healing and strength.

As a visual and imaginative artist, I work purely on impulse. When I set out to do a piece I let my intuition, subconscious or higher self take over and just allow the creation to flow. My art is a material reflection of my soul, representing my eternal processes of finding, understanding and defining myself. As I am ever evolving so too is my art ever evolving.
