In Recognition of Exemplary Membership and an Outstanding Spirit of helpfulness and mentoring within the DeviantArt community.
Introducing DMD-CT
My name is Denise Maritato and I was born and raised in New York. I have been drawing ever since I could hold a pencil with the support and encouragement of my grandmother, a fellow artist. In 2005, I graduated with honors from The Pratt Institute with a degree in Communications / Graphic Design.
After college, I completed a two year internship at a fashion company in Manhattan NY where I designed clothing tags, labels and packaging for hand bags and accessories. I then went on to design balloons for Anagram International and finally found a home working for Amscan Inc. designing halloween costume packaging for the retail chain Party City.
In 2006, I met m

Angels Without Wings

Angel without Wings Award by Nameda
Nominated by JPMNeg

"Denise has been a member of Deviantart for a year, yet she has made perhaps even more contribution to Deviantart than someone who has been here for ten times as much. It’s impossible to see that she has gone full force in every aspect of making DA a great community.

She is there whenever there is a worthy cause to promote, or an artist to give support. She leads a group for digital artists and a senior contributor to another one, helping another people in her field to get some attention. But that’s not the only way she helps fellow artists to get more exposure. She’s the founder of The-Feature-Showcase and a moderator at GetDailyDeviations , both aiming to discover outstanding art. She also often suggests daily deviations, mostly in her own category – digital art -, but is helping photographers as well. She’s also moderator of a group which is specialized to bring underestimated artists to the spotlight, not to mention her astounding features and interviews with digital artists.

Talking about community, Denise is a contributor to several reputable groups trying to promote positivity, holding communities together, helping newbies to start their own way, and is a supervisor at of dAWishingWell and helps to grant wishes of really many deviants. And last, but not least, she’s been a gangsta of love for a really long time – and after so many acts of kindness, good deeds, devotion and love given to every single deviant she knows, she really deserves to earn her wings!"

Rest In Peace Grim

Journal Entry: Fri Dec 16, 2016, 7:11 AM
I logged in this morning to check my messages, and my heart shattered in pieces. One of my best friends on DA, Damien Grimm aka inknalcohol has passed away. He was such a brilliant, wonderful and kindhearted person and words can not describe how much he was loved in his real life and on DA. His sarcastic humor and sharp wit always put a smile on my face as did his letters and cards that randomly showed up in my mailbox... Funny thing is... He used DA coding even in hand written notes. I loved that about him.

Damien was a brilliant writer and did amazing things for the lit community on DA, which he served with all his heart even after his term as CV ended. He always gave 1000% for the community and was very passionate about getting people involved in groups and activities.

He loved his whisky, he loved his dogs, he loved pie, he loved his "princess" and he loved to make people smile even when he was hurting within. Now all I have are his letters which I will always treasure. 

Damien, I love you so much...I hope you finally found the peace that you were looking for.

Denise is a hardworking deviant who goes out of her way to showcase individuals for their kindness as well as for their creative endeavors.

How are you doing?
DMD-CT Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2016  Professional General Artist
Pretty good. Just needed to take a break from DA for a bit to get my life in order. Its hard now that my daughter is in school because there are constant issues that i have to deal with. I just dont have any down time for myself lately. I had to give up so many of my groups...its sad. But my family comes first!

how have you been? It seems quiet around here. Some people left and others are just lacking spirit. Its not the DA i remember. And still no new seniors i see.
