What is a Chair? I am a chair.
Who created “A Chair’s
My name is Charity Ring but most of my friends call me “Chair”.
Thus I came up with the name for my site “A Chair’s
Life.” I am the Office Manager at ActiveLAMP, a web development
company. I also help my brother Brian for his company, drivenIT.
I have also done some contract web design and graphic arts for him
How did I become interested in web design and graphic arts?
I started working for an ISP as a technician in the summer of 1998
and was allowed 5 megs of personal web space. I threw together a
site while reading “Teach Yourself HTML in 24 Hours.”
I taught myself how to use Adobe Photoshop and soon realized that
I could make my own unique graphics instead of using the thousands
of free graphics on the Internet that thousands of other people
were using as well. Within two years of working at the ISP I became
known for my graphics and was promoted to Graphic Artist working
on layout and design of soft and hard copy for the ISP’s look
and feel. Since working for an ISP my site has had a few transformations
but when I registered www.achairslife.com I realized that I wanted
an entire new look for my site.
What is “A Chair’s
Life” all about? It is a creation for me to express
myself. Whether it is through graphics or just photographs that
I want to share with the world or a way for me to vocalize my beliefs,
desires, and expectations of life.
On a more personal note about myself
I am a born-again Christian. I believe whole-heartedly that Jesus
died on the cross for my sins. I have asked him into my heart and
try to serve Him with everything that is in me. Though at times
I fail miserably, I know Jesus loves me no matter what mistakes
I’ve made or keep making. I am a pastor’s daughter.
And no, I do not fit the “Pastor’s Daughter” stigma.
;) I'm not a wild child by any means. My church is called “The
Place” (click the name to learn more about my church).
If you have any questions about what I believe feel free to email
My love in life is photography and
a big part of my site is dedicated to that. I haven’t been
able to take pictures that often these days. It is a dream of mine
to take my camera with me everywhere I go to capture the little
images and scenes that I see on a daily basis and put together a
series of “A Day in the Life of the High Desert.” Now
some people may say “Why the desert?” Well I have found
beauty in the desert since I moved here in 1991. It has to grow
on you though. That’s for sure!
Well if you would like to get to know
more about me then you can email me anytime!
