1. What do you do when you’re not making art? (Day job etc...).

I like to spend time with my mom and her little toy poodle and my sister.

2. Why do you make art?

I create art because it makes me feel good and I hope to share this happiness with others.

3. What inspires you?

I am inspired by light and what it produces such as reflections and shadows. The beauty of everyday life also inspires me.

4. What/who are your influences?

Many years ago I discovered the photography of André Kertész and liked his use of light and dark, resulting in powerful design elements.

5. If you could meet anyone dead or alive who would it be?

I would like to be reunited with my father, who introduced me to photography, and my uncle Carl, who also pursued it as a hobby.
