5. At what age did you first start making art?
12 years old.
6. What inspired you in the beginning and why?
Once I got taught how to draw, that’s when I started to get interested in art. I got really sucked in to the art world when I learned how to control the balance of light and shadow into creating something three dimensional on a flat canvas.
7. Who or what inspires you now?
Currently I am inspired by the powerful movement that are performed by many dancers. The dancers chiseled fit body and the creation of the body movement and what lies underneath the skin: bone, muscle, expression. I feel those are what is the true beauty in human and those images are what inspired me today.

Visually my art is mainly the human body, but within the body lies the mental process in all humans.

I would feel very happy and very grateful. If someone would purchase my work without physically seeing/meeting me, would be a great accomplishment.
