My deviantART Story

Thu Aug 7, 2014, 12:06 AM


Today marks deviantART's 14th birthday!  This is truly an exciting time in deviantART’s history, and I'm confident that the next few months will be some of our best ever.  It might sound cliché or exaggerated, but we’re in a position to change the arts (and the world) through technology, empowering artists of all shapes and sizes to do truly amazing things.  

But before I get too far ahead of myself, I'd like to take a minute to participate in "My deviantART Story" to document a few of the ways that deviantART has helped me grow as a person.

Importance of Travel

World Tour Paris by spyed

Before deviantART's World Tour in 2009, when spyed and I visited nine countries in two months, I'd never been outside of North America.  The World Tour gave me a deep appreciation for travel that I wouldn't have gotten if not for the amazing friendships I've made on deviantART.  Traveling forces you outside of your comfort zone and opens you up to new experiences and awareness that can't be learned any other way.

Gut Instinct

Your Gut Instinct by MorguEen
In life, we're oftentimes faced with two choices -- listening to/following the opinions of others or relying on our own gut instinct.  The older I get, the more I've come to trust my gut feelings and intuition, or otherwise I'd end up kicking myself later.  The importance of speaking up and representing your own thoughts can't be underscored enough.

Technical Aptitude

Smart Phone by NaBHaN

From interacting with brilliant co-workers to seeing the daily ins and outs of computing around the office and online, working at deviantART demands a certain technical aptitude.  I've loved computers and the Internet from an early age, but my job requires an understanding of how different technologies and processes work.  Having such knowledge not only aids with things like decision-making, but it also helps with communication so I'm able to articulate concepts to various kinds of audiences.

Art Appreciation

ReWolf by kchilt

While I am very much an art appreciator over an art creator, my time at deviantART has taught me so much about the arts that simply isn’t covered in a standard education. On deviantART, artists of different genres, diverse age groups, talent levels, and fame are all just a click away.  I've gained a deeper appreciation of the arts simply by observing and being surrounded by so many talented individuals.

True Connections

Out There Be Monsters by luckynesu

I have a few close friends from childhood, but my time on deviantART has provided me a wealth of friendships I wouldn’t otherwise have had the opportunity to make.  These friends have opened me up to different ideas, cultures, and points of view, and I can’t imagine what life would be like without them.  

Thank You


I've said it before, but the sentiment remains true -- I'm forever grateful to have talked with every deviant who has crossed my path -- even in a note, comment, or journal.  The deviantART community has flourished and prospered in the past 14 years, and I'm thankful for that, every day.

Heidi. Female. American. Tall. Sarcastic. Athletic. Bossy. Financial enthusiast. Olympics lover. TV/fandom fanatic.

I've been fortunate to be involved with deviantART from day one and have held a variety of positions over the past thirteen years. Today, I'm deviantART's Vice President of Marketing.

I graduated college with a Journalism major and Political Science minor, and enjoy all aspects of news and politics. I can often be found watching Fox News, CNN, or CNBC during the wee hours of the morning.

When I'm not working, my hobbies include playing and watching almost all sports (basketball, softball/baseball, volleyball, football, tennis, etc.), traveling, geocaching, investing, and trying to be as funny as humanly possible. When it's time to relax, I'll turn on the television or read a book.

I also used to run GilmoreGirls.org, which was pretty epic during its heyday.

Deviousness Award

Bolt Award

For her outstanding work with deviantART, Heidi is presented with the illustrious Bolt Award for 2008. Heidi is the embodiment of community spirit, dedication, and drive that makes deviantART what it is today. Her positive attitude and inspiring personality has been an influence on the formation of the site since the very beginning, and without her, deviantART would be a much duller and less magical place.
-awarded July 2008
