Name: Denise Cummings
Pen names: Ayperi Silverwolf, or just Ayperi. It’s actually a persona/username that I’ve used for a very long time and have been known as. And no, I’m not middle eastern at all, I just liked it because it meant “moon fairy” and I was picking out a pen name.
Experience: Over 20 years in all sorts of arts/crafts and digital/traditional mediums. Like, I literally just do lots of random stuff lol
Hobbies: Aside from all the arts and crafts stuff, I like gaming, reading, and collecting; cookbooks/recipes, craft items, tea sets, and whatever catches my fancy at the time.
About the Site:
This website has gone through so many changes and transitions, it’s crazy lol. I’ve changed, separated and rejoined my various sites and now I’m trying to actually just keep most of it on the same site. So in general, this site is my conduit for showcasing my works, as well as provide random resources and information. Most of my more recent works would be posted in my deviantart gallery, so artwise it’s generally more current, while this site is more current on information and even some exclusive contents.
A little bit of site history:
- My first website was “Ayperi’s Mystic Glen” as my pen-name at the time was Ayperi Silverwolf. This was made when the internet was young and yahoo was mainly a bunch of links with no graphics and blinkies (old schoolers would know this term lol).
- Then years later, I’ve changed it to “Emania: The Land of the Moon“. Both sites were more themed around my spiritual beliefs and it wasn’t till a few years later that I’ve decided to go the more the general artist’s route.
- My site then became “Moonlight Silhouette Studio“, but later on, I wanted to have my own domain (as by that time I still didn’t have one). But my studio title at the time would make for a very long domain and shortening it may cause some confusion.
- Which is when “The Lunarberry” came about and then I later altered the name to “LunarBerry Studio” since it was still more of an art site. I wanted a simple and yet easy to remember name. I also still kept much of the resources from my site’s past incarnations (The Book of Names, now known as Liber a Nomen, for ex.)
- Now, after several years again, I decided to change the name of my studio/general site one final time to MoonFaerie Studio. I really like this name far much better, it’s easy to remember for the most part and it’s more fitting. I have another domain name that I’m currently working on building into something else that more general/spiritual related.
*Of course, all previous incarnations of my site no longer exists, so if you see those titles, it’s not related to my past/current site(s). Not mine, not me :P
