*”It began when I started getting weird comments on a much earlier website & wanted to know where they were coming from…Turns out someone in Moscow, Russia…I actually took down the whole site(it was a GoDaddy site)…Scary comments scare me, especially from someone in a foreign country where it is hard to find people so they feel they can get away with things…We are now with a very very safe web host called HostAwesome…I felt the GoDaddy site was attracting the wrong kind of people…The WordPress.org site template & all the plug-ins is also well designed…”

Updates + Date Last Updated Wed. Aug. 26th, 2015

These terms of service and privacy policy will be periodically reviewed and updated to reflect the current functions of the site.

 

Disclaimer:Please know;

that this site is not the same as working one-on-one with a professional
that I cannot guarantee that users will get the same result
that our site is for educational and informational purposes only
that we attempt to include accurate information but that information may not be 100% accurate
that users should use the site/the information at their own risk
that I am an artist( which doesn’t mean a lack of credentials in other fields necessarily, but that I choose to present from the artists’ perspective &  content is creative in nature…( out of the box thinking in any field including medicine is the artist’s domain)…

Disclaimer help comes from The Artist’s J.D.

Word of Warning

GroveCanada.Ca is an educational and informational resource for you as a creative human on many topics that might impact your artistic life…

We do our best to provide information that is applicable regardless of where you live, but we cannot make any promises or guarantees that this information will be applicable  where you live…( variations in climate, culture, laws, supply & demand)

On the blog, we may use examples that seem eerily similar to things happening in your  life… But everyone is unique. Because of that this site is not a replacement for working with one-on-one with an artist…And there will be times where you should probably most definitely consult with an artist to learn how topics/examples covered here actually apply to your life…

Policies about Pictures you have sent to edit:

“Yes…Thank you…I usually lose pictures quickly(life is messy-Garth Brooks, typical artist syndrome)…

I will store files of pictures if the person is working with me to research a new technique…ie: the Lunapic edit…But that is a peer thing…Always on approval & with permission…Even then I misplace things…

If some specifically says to use a picture, then I might…Not always…

generally speaking I prefer to delete everything right away…

I usually assume people should store their own pictures & keep them in files to track progress…Safer that way if I delete them…

I also mention to only send me modest pictures if possible-edit nipples out or anything that might be beyond medicine…If nipple has to be involved then fine…Close up is better…I prefer not to see anything that crosses over into anything beyond clinical…

My husband does not look at any of the pictures…At all…

he does consult me verbally if I am stuck on something, but not visuals & not personal matters unless it is medically necessary for him to know a detail that I cannot understand…

We work best together by not working together…I do my thing & he does his…But we keep our work separate so we have different opinions on things…

Different people too…Him, mostly men…Me, mostly women…

There is sometimes crossover if someone is gender confused…(gay, lesbian, transgendered)…At that point we switch to protect ourselves…ie:someone who prefers men as a sexual thing will talk to me-just for safety -for ourselves…

I am a Virgo if that helps…Virgin when I got married…Total prude…Total…I even edit my own pictures to be less sexual…(ridiculous I know)…
