Angels And Gangstas Group Monthly Award by MayEbony
"Nancy has been a dedicated member of DA since she joined in 2004. She just recently retired her position as the APN Community Volunteer and can always be seen leaving comments, giving critiques and making features whenever she can. She is always polite and helpful to everyone she meets and is a positive role model to all!"
December Award

Angel without Wings Award by Nameda
Nominated by MayEbony

"Nancy is a Community Volunteer in the APN (Animals, Plants & Nature) section of dA, but she is also so much more. Always kind-hearted and totally selfless, Nancy goes out of her way to help anyone who crosses her path. She replies kindly when she can't accept a nomination for a DD, but often features the nominations in her own stunning journals and enjoys giving the artists exposure anyway. She also cares that the artists see they were nominated, because of the joy they will feel through that honour. Nancy makes time in her busy schedule to answer all of the messages that come to her, and even if you ask about a topic she doesn't know, she will find out who you should ask. Her photography is truly beautiful and she is so kind with her comments to others both in her journals and on her deviations. Her life motto appears to be 'I want to help others'. She is definitely living that, supporting it with a great deal of love, and spreading joy far and wide."

Deviousness Award

Deviousness Award
When thinking of hardworking, talented artists who dedicate their time to the DeviantArt community, there are some deviants that come to mind almost instantly. Anoya is one of those deviants. A long-time member of the photography community, Nancy has provided her insight, guidance, and energy for new photographers and experts alike. In addition to her endeavors as a photographer, she has dedicated multiple years of her time to DeviantArt as a Community Volunteer for the Animals, Plants, and Nature photographers, and it is with immense gratitude that we present the Deviousness Award for April 2015 to Anoya.
-awarded April 2015

Kind of here, but not.

Since my last journal from January 2017 a lot has happened in my offline life. Some of the bigger things are that loved ones died, I changed jobs twice (within the company I've been working at for 8 years now), and I've found a special guy. Due to me changing jobs again recently, I'll be going back to school as well (NEVI), I'm also trying to be with this special guy quite often and also try to focus more on myself at the same time. I don't do much online anymore, since I spend most of my working days sitting in front of screens, I like to try and move more instead of sitting even more. I've been paying more attention to my FitBit, trying to get at least 5000 steps per day, preferably more of course but that's pretty much my minimum. I'm also trying to pay more attention to eating more healthy due to the blood pressure, but me and Mr. Special like to go out as well. Restaurants, cinema's, etc.

I'll be getting back into photography when Spring comes. It's an annual thing now that Winter just bursts my bubble of photography mojo. I just fucking hate winter, cold, ice, snow.. ugh. Can't wait for new life, green leaves, flowers, even insects. The cute ones anyway.

Also. My dog died of old age last November. He was 16,5. I miss him dearly. My parents recently got a puppy. He's a cute silly bouncy ball. I'm sure I'll take (more) photographs when he's a bit bigger and can sit still for a couple seconds. And Spring.

I'm here every other day or so, checking some messages and trying to keep up with Nederlanders, but I'm noticing more and more that I log on less and less here. If you want to contact me, message me on Facebook or WhatsApp. If you don't have my contact information but feel you need to/want to/should have it, send me a note. Or of course contact me when you already have my number or we're already friends on Facebook :B
Also, I haven't been neglecting my friends here, although it feels that way sometimes. Life just happens. For all of us. We might not talk often, but I miss it and I appreciate all of our conversations. You know who you are. You matter to me. A lot.



Artist | Photography
I've joined dA in 2004. My passion for photography grew and my community spirit and 'pay it forward' mentality started growing really fast. I love commenting, giving critiques, talking to deviants.. just the entire community!

I received `Seniority on Christmas Eve 2009, the day before Christmas, which was a complete surprise. I never got used to that little tick, and it made me smile every time I noticed it.

From June 1st, 2010, the day before my birthday, to December 1st, 2011, I was the Gallery Moderator Community Volunteer for the Photography > Animals, Plants & Nature category.
On August 29th, 2013, I started my second term as the Animals, Plants & Nature Photography Community Volunteer and this term also ended on December 1st, but three years later, 2014.

On April 1st, 2015, I got awarded the Deviousness Award! :heart:

I also have an extra badge that won't show in the top bar. It keeps me safe from tigers and lions, according to Mathness who made it for me!
