I'd like to introduce myself, My name is Reesa, I'm 29, and I'm from Redding California. 10 years ago I was in a car accident caused by a drunk driver. I was completely paralyzed from the neck down. Before the accident, I was 18 and just starting college to eventually become a paramedic. As a child, I always had a creative side to me and I did alot of sketching. I put off the creative side of me to persue other things, but now creating has become a big part of my life again. I know there are quadraplegics that sketch with their mouths, but I just did NOT have the patience to go from stick figures to beautiful creations again, hehehe. I do create art with my mouth, I just can't draw. I really miss my hands. I have been creating digital art for about 6 years now, a big portion of that time with paint shop pro. I had been spending much of that time manipulating surfed art and making little siggies purely for my own amusement. I started feeling like PSP just wasn't that much of a challenge for me, so I decided to try photoshop. I can't describe how intimidating it was. I have been working with photoshop for about a year and a half now. I had also begun to visit Deviant Art and saw so much raw talent out there, and I wished so bad that my art could be worthy enough, that I could be courageous enough to fit in among the finest. After some suggestion to try it, I decided to take the plunge and get myself an account. Please bear with me, any mistakes I make are purely accidental. There are many things I still need to learn how to do. I'm happy to be here and make good friends.
