eMily, I don't know if this is what you read about here, but it sounds like a good place to start -- from the www.glitterguru.com
website -- the Glitter Guru - "Suzette Troche-Stapp a.k.a "the glitterguru" is one of the most sought-after photographer/digital artists today.... As an award-winning photographer and digital artist, her vast background has given her a wealth of experience in the intersection of art and technology." You can look at her portfolio and her before and afters to see if she does the type of work that you would like to learn.
She has a book listed on Amazon (ask Santa for it if it looks good!) http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/073...83155&v=glance
Have you tried some of the Challenges here on this website, and read any of the tips and tutorials? You can learn a lot here as well as reading and practicing with books, so by the time you've completed high school, you'll be ready to choose a good digital art school program and polish off your skills.
