Darcy Wold

Darcy Wold is a part-time artist, an inveterate editor, and an even more inveterate reader. In her day job, she works for CDISC (a standards development organization specializing in clinical data interchange) as a publishing editor and a technical metadata curator. Both roles involve finding creative ways to make things both pretty and meaningful at the same time, without either the the prettiness or the meaning getting in the way of the other. Any remaining creativity goes into her art, which is currently mostly digital, and frequently fractal-based. Her published art includes some book covers and the occasional animated web ad.

Darcy was raised by a statistician and a science fiction writer in an ex-blue-collar-tobacco town, except for three years spent in west London, England. For two of those three years, she attended a theatre arts vocational school, but was unable to continue her training on the other side of the pond, and eventually majored in Asian and religious studies at a small liberal arts college in southern California. She has taken classes in a variety of partner and modern dances, and has tried to learn a couple different instruments, though without much success. She sings mezzo in a womens' chorus, identifies roughly as pratyeka-buddhist, is sometimes quite sarcastic, and aggressively scribbles out or deletes extraneous apostrophes at every opportunity.
