NOTE: I'm taking a partial break from dA due to personal reasons. I'm going to pop in every now and then (a couple of times a week, probably) to check messages and notes. If you have something important you want to tell me, send me a note. Meanwhile, I can be found on tumblr at kiukkukissa.tumblr.com/ (journal blog) and art-by-kiukkukissa.tumblr.com/ (art/sketch/wip blog) (and of course via email, by those who have my email address).
I am a self-taught painter with an abstract/surreal approach to art.
I'm married and I've got 3 cats.

For me, the main ingredient in any work of art is feeling.
Sometimes I drop off the radar for weeks for personal reasons. When I eventually return, I'll catch up with any meaningful comments and notes, so don't worry if I don't reply to your comment/note in a couple of days. I eventually do.
Note: I don't usually thank people for faves, unless I have a special reason to do it (if someone faves a whole bunch of my deviations, for example). That doesn't mean I don't appreciate the faving. I just don't want to clutter people's comment boxes with "thank you" messages. I don't expect others to thank me for favouriting their work, either (but it's not a problem if you do).
