"I work as a Digital Press Operator at Graphic Technologies, inc. Getting my degree in photography has definitely helped me along the way with knowing how to work with colors and curves, making my digital prints at work up to my customers standards. Though my work does not allow me to make my own creations, I still love what I do and am happy to be in the business I am.
My most favorite type of photography are those made strictly with the camera and its surroundings, (not added to and or edited to make something spectacular). I strongly believe that a true photographer can make just as beautiful photographs in this way than any other photographer who relies on computer editing software skills to "help out" their works. Sometimes I wish photographs were still made "the old fashioned" way. So much so, that I plan a darkroom of my own some day. My works are called "Light Paintings." I make them using my camera and the many different lighting situations I find myself mesmerized by while making them. When you look at my work, you are looking at one frame from the camera. You will not have to question how much of it was edited or how many frames it took to make that one image. I am not only the photographer of these works, but also the maker! I am the human who stands in front of that camera and dances with my chosen light emitting object at the time. I enjoy this very much; as I get to be free with my lights as I dance among them." - Anastacia
Jennifer has loved art for as long as she can remember. Drawing, painting, photography, pottery, you name it, she loved it. She used to live and breathe it. So it's amazing that somehow she did the unthinkable... she allowed herself to lose her drive.
It wasn't until She lost her dad to congestive heart failure, due to Agent Orange, that she began to paint again. It began to pour out of her. It became her therapy. Now she is trying like hell to rekindle her passion for her craft. For Jennifer, anatomical hearts & birds grabbed her attention drawing her back into painting. While other ailments are retaining her creative process, Jennifer has struggled from Diastematomyelia since she was born. It is a condition that peaks her interest as a subject matter in her pieces. You will see Jennifer using others struggles in her art as way of relating to the beauty of life lived and life lost.
While this is Jennifer's bio, her dad's life has become incredible apart of it. So when you look at her art, see more than just a painting or a sculpture... see her heart.

Ramses Osirus is an enigmatic artist in Omaha Nebraska that studied engineering and holds a Bachelors of Science degree in Engineering.
Named after the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses and the God of the afterlife and resurrection Osiris, Ramses Osiris transcends the ordinary life of man through his works of art. Drawing from inspirations personal to existential, many subjects are explored through the mind of this man-god.
"I have long used creativity, art, and design as an outlet to escape from the bitter reality of the modern world. I can make statements through creative expression without saying a word, and, sometimes adequate words do not exist to express the ideas or feelings I am conveying. There are no language barriers in the visual world.
I enjoy learning, and have acquired a vast amount of useless information that may be beneficial if I were to ever appear on the program "Jeopardy". I enjoy working in a variety of artistic styles including mixed media, painting, photography, and architectural models." - Ramses Osirus

She loves food that is spicy enough to make eyes water and lips quiver. Also things that are sweet enough to make eyes cross.
All the depictions of a low life womanizer. The hot air balloon is made of rubbers. The basket - chinese take out. The sand bags, are fortune cookies. Silver tongue devil, dick head, Bozo the clown, spineless jellyfish, rat, rotten to the core. The worm is thinking about sex so much, even the seeds in the apple are 69. On his ear, he has a woman trapped in a mouse trap....tricked her with a cupcake. He has women on the brain, even a pear tree he sees as a woman. The thinker, is a penis. Thinks with his Dick. Resembling my ex husband. The man morphing into a worm is full of hot air. The flying pig is breathing down the worms neck with commitment.
