Q: Can you share with us what has influenced your work?
A: I think I'm just a naturally sensitive, creative, and spiritual person. I've always been a creator. My mom was a wonderful painter who loved color, and I think that this influenced me on a deep unconscious level. I've always been a nature person, and love to explore off the beaten trail. I'm very attuned to differing qualities of light, season, beauty, form, and the essence of people. I wouldn't say that there's a particular artist or photographer who has influenced me the most. I'm a musician as well as a photographer, and in truth, music has impacted my artistic expression as much or more than any visual artist.
Q: What impact did your professional training have on your decision to have a virtual gallery and roster of artists?
A: Honest answer: none! I'm essentially self-taught in all creative endeavors from music to photography. And now I'm learning how to run a gallery as they say via "the school of life."
