Hello everyone! I am SubtleMoon and I intend to subtly inspire your creativity and passions for cooking, art, reading, writing, anthropology and so much more. Be inspired to be uniquely you! I have led a life that is full of surprises and contains a multitude of experiences. I have been formally trained in China Painting, Anthropology, Technical Writing & Editing, Graphic Art and Computer Graphics. I grew up riding horses, motorcycles and drawing on anything I could get my hands on. I had formal piano lessons but am self-taught on the guitar, flute and ocarina. I love the water and as a young adult, enjoyed watching everything on TV about marine biology. My work experience has included working more than one job at a time for a few years in the following fields (Over a period of 33 years): Veterinary Assistant, Photography Darkroom Technician, Butcher's Assistant, Christian Education Director, Graphic Artist, Graphic Art Director, Corporate Trainer and Information Technology Manager. I have also freelanced as a Technical Writer, Graphic Artist and Photographer. So you can see that I have enjoyed being busy and trying many new things. Top all that off with my personal hobbies and interests that include: Creative Writing, Reading, Cooking, Gardening, Movies, playing Board Games, being creative with just about any area of my life and so much more. Now I am basically taking the time to enjoy the things I love most, which are many. I hope you enjoy my lenses and that you are able to take something away with you. I hope that I will inspire you to try something new, spark your creativity, bring joy to your life and make you smile.
