I have always been interested in Photography & Design.
I love Photoshop, I have been using Photoshop for just over 5 years now (currently using CS5 Extended), I am self taught. I have learnt all of what I do from online tutorials & also by "fiddling"~ I feel this is the best way to learn anything ~ keep trying until you work it out.........I can't get enough of it. I find it is a great creative outlet. It lets me go places I only dream of.
I hope to travel to Egypt one day

"Pareeerica creates beautiful sublime art. it's always a delight see how she assembles the elements of a composite or decides to fashion a photomanipulation. Behind the scenes she works tirelessly at countless groups and asks for nothing in return. She has been endlessly supportive of my humble efforts and for that I am enormously grateful."

"Pareeerica has been a contact of mine for a couple of years now. She continues to inspire me with her incredible creations and skill. She is a true Photoshop master. Check out her wonderful set of textures for use in our works. Paree is always willing to share and give advice. Thanks for everything.
Your friend Brian"

"I've known of pareerica's work for a couple of years now and it amazes me that she self taught herself how to make these amazing works of art. For someone like me who is trying to do that same thing, it is inspirational and educational. I thank you Ma'am."

"Pareé is one of my dearest friends on flickr. I feel and adore the creative flow in her and I am grateful for a bliss time we had together in our three-women-group :)
It is always a joy looking at her stream, her work is full of deep mysteries, jump in the picture ....and the story begins.......
I love her gothic art :))"

"Pare' has such a wonderful style with
combining images, especially her use of textures.
I love how they just blend together so beautifully!
She has a real knack for this and one that I am envious of.
Perhaps, I will learn to copy it, but they will never be
as lovely as hers are.
Also, she is very generous with sharing..........
textures, snips, etc...........she really knows how to
save time for her fellow chop-aholics!
thanks, Paree, I am so glad to have
found you in flickrville......... you're a real pal!"

"Pareeerica- triple threat
Paree is first and foremost an artist. She has that special inate talent that guides her to adding elements to ordinary images to make them more than what they first appeared to be. She often sees what others miss and this is something that cannot be taught. She also knows when to stop or let's say she has mastered the art of knowing "how much is enough". I am frequently amazed at what she can convey in some of her most seemingly simple images.
In addition to great insight she has wonderful skills that help her communicate her vision. I often marvel at what she can "whip up" at what seems to be a moment's notice. She has been learning editing so fast that if she were a race car we would all be covered with dust, her bumper barely visible in the distance.
And that brings me to the third strength in this testimony. To further the analogy, Paree, noticing our lagging behind, would slow down, teach us how she does it and she would give us the gift of teaching us without condecension or impatience. It is what she does as our flickr friend and in the most friendly way. I am very happy to consider her my friend and look forward to many more hours of being simply amazed by her talent and her cooperative nature."

""""pareeerica has a unique vision and a real talent in family photography and she is obviously willing to work very hard to make her vision come to life. She has a terrific sense of humor combined with a great visual sense."
She has an incredible eye and is truly gifted! Her photographs stream full of creative work snapshots and photos make you feel like you are standing right there. I look forward to her photos . Thanks so much for sharing your world."""""

"The queen of S2 Wraps!!!
I'm not one to write a testimonial, but it would take a blind person to simply cruise by Pareeerica's gallery without noticing the awesome content and time consuming manipulations everywhere using everything. A wide imagination makes the flow from Pareeerica's mind seem effortless with the results continuousely pouring into flickr for the world to share.
Definitely the most accomplished S2 Wrap artist on Flickr.
Congratulations Pareeerica on being such a great person and always being there with such a helpful soul.
Peace & Enjoy :-)"
