In Recognition of Exemplary Membership and an Outstanding Spirit of helpfulness and mentoring within the DeviantArt community.

Introducing KovoWolf

:iconkovowolf:

Hello! My name is Amber and I’m an art enthusiast and deviously addicted to DeviantArt in the most healthy way possible. My artistic adventures started when I was very young, doodling on my homework as far back as I can remember. My grandfather stirred within me a passion and desire to pursue the arts and to keep going with it. Even passing down his Disney animation books he received when he worked for Disney as an animator. After loosing his battle with cancer I lost all motivation, will and desire to continue with my art. In any form or fashion. It was soul crushing.

After being referred to join DeviantArt by a friend who was a deviant I came to see what it was all about. I signed up and just like that, from the embers of near artistic defeat after loosing my grandfather, DeviantArt, friends and family helped to reforge me from the ashes and help me gain the confidence and support to keep moving forward. DeviantArt gave me the outlet to burst free and allowed me to harness motivation. It filled me with daily inspirations. With each positive comment, share, and favorite the community here stated to pull me back from the void. DeviantArt community truly is like no other. I’ve made so many friends and acquaintances throughout my time here that I’m so honored and grateful for it. Once you become a part of this community it can be life changing.

“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time” – Thomas Merton

My art is an expression of my feelings and raw untamed emotion. I let the strokes tell who I am and I love what story’s they can weave. To create a piece of artwork you can truly connect with as if it was cut and woven from the very fabric of your being. Art allows us the ability to step away from the confines of reality and allow ourselves to get lost in a world created from the power of our minds. Art is a humbling and character building experience. Art is to preserve and cherish our imaginations. This in itself inspires me. I’ve always had a wild imagination and I love bringing them to life. I can release the stresses of every day life and let the colors soak the negative away like a sponge and ring out the positive back onto the canvas.

“The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.” – Pablo Picasso

This quote has a deep rooted meaning for me and I’ve always found solace and inspiration in it. Art is something felt emotionally and physically and that’s why I love it. It’s something that touches each and every one of us differently and it’s a humbling, scary and an exciting experience. It can make us laugh or cry. Something I would no sooner give up because I enjoy feeling a sense of true, untamed freedom when I’m lost in my own world of art or another artists. Living and breathing art.



February 2016

Deviousness Award Winner

A long time deviant, KovoWolf has been a vital member of the DeviantArt community for the past 12 years. Acting as a community volunteer, she helped bring the best Anthro artwork to the forefront, and embraced the community. Outside of her time spent as a volunteer, she was also sure to participate in annual community projects such as the Valentine’s Day Art Exchange and Holiday Card Project, as well as creating useful tutorials for the community to ensure everyone has the best DeviantArt experience possible. Her tireless love for the community, combined with her clear dedication, make KovoWolf the perfect recipient of February’s Deviousness Award!

We’re proud to name KovoWolf as the Deviousness Award recipient for February 2016

Amber has been such a great influence towards this community! Her anthro arts and ideas are absolutely inspirational to look at. I also appreciate her time as an Anthro CV. She’s been there since I started DD Suggesting and she showed true dedication toward the Anthro community. She’s a perfect example of a rock star here on DA! Thank you, Amber.”

I had the pleasure of interacting with KovoWolf once I started to suggest DDs and discovered that she was the long-standing Anthro CV. Her politeness and dedication as a Community Volunteer always stood out, to say nothing of the consistent quality of artworks she featured on a near daily basis. Amber has served as an exemplary role model for community spirit and service, influencing my own efforts here, and I extend a hearty congratulations on her Deviousness award!”

KovoWolf’s work is extraordinarily beautiful and magical. While I know very little of her beyond my fondness for her art, her enthusiasm and magnetic presence as the CV for the Anthro community introduced me to a whole new genre that I had failed to explore before. Congratulations, KovoWolf! And thanks for all your hardwork: for all the beautiful art you create and feature, and for your dedication to the community. This award is so very well deserved.”

KovoWolf is truly one of the greatest Deviants you could ever meet. From the day we first spoke to each other as a fellow volunteer we formed a great friendship and I have only the fondest memories of my conversations with her. Not only is she a talented and passionate artist but she is also one of tho kindest souls I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. You can’t talk to her without a warm feeling in your heart. She is that friend that everyone wants, reliable, humble, inspirational and selfless. A true gem in our community who has served her gallery well and earned this well deserved deviousness award!”

KovoWolf has been an incredible asset, friend, and light in the DeviantArt community. Her time here has been dedicated to helping others and sharing incredible beauty within the community. Her gallery is filled with powerful pieces that show her dedication to those of us who love wolves and nature. There are few that are as dedicated and loving as Amber, and I am so happy to hear that she has received Deviousness. Congratulations!”

Amber truly embodies the spirit of community in every way, its lovely to see her incredible enthusiasm being acknowledged with the Deviousness Award. Helpful, supportive and thoughtful of both individual artists and larger community projects shes one talented deviant everyone should have on their watch list and regularly spam with hugs.”

KovoWolf is a shining light in the Anthro Community and on DeviantArt in general. She is always willing to lend a hand or even an ear. It’s been an absolute pleasure working with her these past few years within the Anthro Community. Passion should be her middle name is reflective both in her community spirit and her artwork. Kovo is a beautiful soul and one very deserving of the Deviousness Award. Congratulations KovoWolf!”

Amber has been a driving force within the community for many years now. She’s the kind of person who is always happy to lend a helping hand when and where she is able. If it’s a project she’s helping with or simply lending an ear, her kindness shows through everything she does! She’s one of those people you can’t help but look up to, be it for her talent with art, or just her positive approach towards life.”

Like many others, I first knew KovoWolf as the anthro community volunteer. She was a great volunteer, giving feedback, being very understanding, and devoting her time to make the anthro community a strong one. Her accomplishments shaped this community and will not be forgotten so easily. Kovo was, and still is, an inspiration to me, both for her contribution to the community and her art. It’s people like KovoWolf who make DeviantArt such a unique place. I am grateful to be part of celebrating an amazing person with my clumsy words (hopefully better than my daily deviation descriptions…). It’s a pleasure to see KovoWolf receive the Deviousness Award. She will be missed as a community volunteer, but hopefully, it will leave more time for her to grant us the gift or her art. Congratulations KovoWolf and thank you for all you’ve done!”

Amber is an asset to DeviantArt, and a boon to the Anthro Community. She dedicated more time and energy into her volunteer work than most people can put into their full-time jobs. She is not only a kind and generous soul, she is also very talented - her web designs breathed new life into the Anthro Community and set a new standard for professionalism. I am glad I’ve had the chance to know Amber, and I am confident that wherever she goes and whatever she puts her mind to, she’ll be a success!”

What comes to mind when I think of Amber is: creativity and dedication. She’s a very dedicated girl committed to make everything more awesome, something I learned during our time as community volunteers together, but that is evident just by looking at her gallery and profile. Not only a very talented artist but also a great designer, always willing to help. Congrats Amber! You deserve it!”

Kovo’s such an integral member of the community, I honestly can’t imagine DA without her. During my own tenure as a CV, she set a standard of quality which I strove for. And her surreal, elemental art never fails to charm and relax.”

I am honoured to have worked with Amber while we were both Community Volunteers in the Community Relations team. My experience there was made more awesome because of Amber’s commitment, passion and kindness. Not only did she really show the rest of us how we should be, she brought out the best in us as well. Amber’s dedication to the Anthro gallery is evident in her projects and features, and her stunning artwork too! Anyone can tell that Amber crafts these things with love and care, so it comes as no surprise that Amber is February’s Deviousness. Congratulations, Amber!”

First of all I’m very happy for KovoWolf, she absolutely deserves this award because her dedication for DeviantArt or supporting others is extraordinary. I absolutely agree when Amber says: "DeviantArt is a healthy addiction". I admit to have the same addiction and I’m sure we’re not the only ones. I have to add that Amber is a great person and artist and was a great Community Volunteer. I know that she tried to give her best every day for this community as a CV and for me it’s an example to follow. For this I have a big THANK YOU for her. Like DD Suggester I have to apologize for all the notes and I appreciate her patience and kindness. Amber I wish you all the best, hope you’ll continue to do great things for our lovely community. Blessings to you and congratulations, you deserve it.”

Amber is not only incredibly talented artist and designer, but an absolute joy to talk to and I’ve worked with her on numerous projects, both within the Community Relations Team and in the wider DeviantArt space! She’s so receptive and attentive when you’re screaming at CSS or just need a nudge in the right direction. It’s amazing to know we have people like her in the community to guide and inspire those around her. Well done Amber, incredibly well deserved!!”

I had the fortune of training Amber when she first joined the CV team and what I found was a wonderful, enthusiastic person who is always willing to listen to others and take direction when she needed it-so much so that in turn she became the person guiding others. Not only this, she is a lovely, genuine person and great friend, everything a person who is devious on this site should be! Well done Amber, so proud of you!”

Ambers always been one of the best to work with. Quick to understand many sides of things, and helpful to get people together on the same pages. Running projects and fun things with Amber has always been a joy, and a laugh. Hugs and happiness, an award to celebrate how amazing she is!

KovoWolf has been fairly active in the community even before she became a Community Volunteer for Anthro, such that it spilled outside the anthro world! From hosting various contests to informational articles through projecteducate that one can use as reference later on, she is an inspirational artist as well as a supportive, energetic deviant. It's also amazing to see talented artist in varied field of interest go through improvements in their progress and have that recognizable artwork and also the spirit to help others in her own way!


Congratulations to KovoWolf!

Deviousness Award

Deviousness Award
It is not often we bestow deviousness upon someone who is already a member of staff, but sometimes you need to bend those rules when there are exceptions to the rule like $Moonbeam13. She has been heading up the crew of Gallery Directors as head of Artist Relations for going on a year now, listening to suggestions from the community, enacting her own ideas, getting input from the volunteers, and bringing you massively cool contests. And that’s just some of the things she gets done in a single day. It is with great pride and a huge vote of “thanks” that we give deviousness to $Moonbeam13 on the verge of our 6th Anniversary!
-awarded August 2006
