Stacy J Maddox
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United States
I am a Teller of Stories; I especially like being this way, because I've come to realize that I'm good at it. In addition to being a published Writer and Photographer, I am also into Digital Art & Photomanipulation and Gardening. A lot of my altered Visual Art pieces come from the plants and flowers that I grow here, in & out of my home; I am fascinated with the natural geometry, shapes and patterns.

One of my favorite all-time things to do is go down to the river, here where I live, and take pictures of the elemental surroundings; if I can get some fishing or swimming in, I'm over the moon!. I like to walk the trails and observe things that people may not have ever seen and take tons of pictures of the habitat with different angles and perspectives. When I upload the pictures, I open them up in IfranView to size them, then copy them to GIMP where the real work begins. I am often surprised at the things that the camera has captured that I did not see with my naked eye.

Ever since I was young, I have felt the pull to create and spin stories through my Art about how beautiful the world and people can be and maybe to bring light, sometimes dark, out of its hiding place for it to be discovered and examined.

stardrifting has started a donation pool!
164 / 1,500
Originally, I started this Donation Pool to help offset the prizes for a few Contests I would like to run. To those of you that contributed to this cause, I appreciate you! However that was several years ago and my life has changed (doesn't it always?).

I no longer have the time to run any contests, so I am changing the purpose of the Donation Pool to my next Core Membership payment, in three months. Thank you very much ~ Stacy P.S. Anything helps!

You must be logged in to donate.
