I love photography and creating digital art. It is my current passion! :)
Many have inquired as to how I create my images. I use photos, scanned material, lots of layering with textures, several different image editing/art programs that replicate many art mediums and the desire to create something interesting. :)
And since I`m asked often, I use a Wacom Graphire 2 pen and tablet. I couldn`t live without it. :)
By the way, all of the photos used in assembling my digital creations are not always taken by me.
Some are obtained through a stock photo community to which I am a member, purchased CDs containing photos, clipart and vector images, a few are photos from a photographer who has allowed me to use black and white photos of his models and many of the human figures are rendered in Poser.

"Sunny is one of my original contacts in the love of flickr global community.Her photographic art is tasteful and pleasant.. In this day of over the top saturations and effects. She stands proudly with understatement and beauty on displays.. An inspiration to all and not to be missed..Classical beauty of subjects transmuted to meaningful images.I stand in awe of the artform as presented by Art of Gold

From her Heart of Gold that produce each Master Piece as Art Of Gold.

"...when I am feeling low or just overwhelmed with the daily life, I log onto to flickr and visit artofgold's photostream and I am instantly launched into a dream world of magic and imagination. A cure for the blues, pure inspiration and wonderful beautiful imagery to soak in!"
3rd May, 2006
"So much expression and beauty is brought out in ArtOfGold's images! They are a joy to view for a moment or for a lifetime. ArtOfGold is an inspiration to me and I'm sure to you."

"if there is a "top ten artists" list on flickr my vote is on artofgold as no. 1."
30th January, 2006
"ArtofGold is a masterful artist and photographer. She makes you participate in her work by pulling you into each of her wonderful shots.
She has honed her skill to that of a master crafts(wo)man.
Keep up the great work!"

"How did I not write a Testimonial for Sunny who I have known thru many Flogs?
She is an incredibly innovative and creative artist. It is a pleasure to know her under these circumstances and the beauty she brings to our world is absolutely something I cherish as is our cyber friendship."

"Artsie is simply a great "digital artist": it's self-evident. Probably, this is an inaccurate definition: her genre is her name, her art lies in her images and raises from them to your eye. So, I can say "she is an artist", regardless of the definition."
20th September, 2005
"Her depth of creativity is amazing. Sunny's work is not only emotional, but has the effect of making one think about the image and its symbolism."
13th August, 2005
"What can I say except, I love her work and
love it's sensitive nature. What skill is hidden behind this creativity. she would make a good mentor"
22nd April, 2005
"Dreamscapes, food for the soul, a peaceful repose, dancing with visual perception, a feast for the eyes, truly magnifcent creations of art, masterpieces - each accurately describes the work of artofgold.
Each day I eagerly search for her newest creation, knowing that it will transpose me into a 'notherly' world, providing a few moments of peace and tranquility in an otherwise hectic day. I could dwell on each creation indefinately, though, and yearn to be constantly surrounded by them!
To visit artofgold's portfolio is a treat, indeed - one that shouldn't be missed. Take the time to dwell on each image - bask in its beautify, soak up the aura that exudes from it, go on to the next, and leave a better person.
Thanks, artofgold, for making my world a little bit brighter and a whole lot better!"
