I sell under the names of Becky Hayes and Digital Doohickeys. Please visit my other website, www.DigitalDoohickeys.blogspot.com, to see my printable digital downloads.
I am a photographer and self-taught graphic artist originally from Nansemond County and Suffolk, Virginia. My office/studio is located in rural Southampton County in a converted two-room schoolhouse.
I love to shop for vintage handkerchiefs, linens, doilies, jewelry, etc. to create one-of-a-kind vintage inspired crafts. I also use public domain images, new items, and my photography and graphics. With my nontraditional outlook on life, I often say, " Just because an item was made for one purpose, it doesn't mean you can't make something else with it."
♥ Graphics and Photography (Digital Downloads)
I became interested in photography while attending college. When digital cameras came out, I felt like I had struck gold…I could finally afford to take as many photos as I wanted!
I became interested in graphics when I downloaded a free trial of Corel PaintShop Pro. When I created my first kaleidoscope from a photo of a co-worker, I knew I had found my calling!
Since some customers enjoy the “weird” graphics I design, I decided to name the types of graphics:
♥ PhotoArt ~ the name I use to represent graphics that I make from photos and color schemes. I manipulate the item I am working on in Corel PaintShop Pro and create kaleidoscopes, patterns, weird shapes and colors, designs, etc.
♥ FractalArt ~ the name I use to represent graphics made using a fractal computer program.
I hope you enjoy my studio…and stop by again when you get a chance!
Thank you for visiting!
