This week’s In Focus is showcasing the outstanding talent of *rustymermaid on deviantart.
Barbara Moustafa is 61, married with four grown-up sons. She lives in the picturesque seaside town of Gibson’s Landing in British Columbia, Canada.
Before discovering Photoshop, Barbara created art using mixed media such as metal, paper, etc., applied to a canvas base.
She is a self-taught user of Photoshop and Photoshop Elements.
Barbara’s art tends towards the darker side of fantasy with a touch of humour.
To date she has had three art shows, has been published three times in digital art magazines, plus a tutorial, and is currently in the process of contracting out some of her art for a CD cover.
Her aim for the future is to design book covers.
Details of where to find more art and design from *rustymermaid can be found after the showcase.
