When and how do you start to create?

I've actually had an artistic bent my entire life. I've always drawn, loved color and beauty. It was toward high school when I started creating and actually starting to explore my talents constructively. At first I was infatuated with drawing with charcoal and had a particular fascination with faces, eyes specifically. Sometimes I would just fill entire pages with eyes of various shapes and sizes. Eventually I found photography which took over my artistic expression until the last few years when I've now begun to explore other mediums, including film making.

How do you learn and work your skill?

Sometimes I seek out others with the expertise with a medium I'm interested in. That can either be a friend or a Youtube tutorial. Other times I experiment with trial and error until I achieve the desired results.

What do you like in this art, your motivation?

I tend to think outside the box on most everything. Nothing is black and white and I enjoy saying what I need to say, sometimes challenging the masses and using my art to do so.

Arrow

What do you want to express or arouse in those who watch your work?

As long as a person sees my work and it makes them feel something or think deeper about something then I feel like I've done my job as an Artist.

Arrow

What are your favourite subject(s)?

The human body is an endlessly fascinating subject.

How do you prepare a creation or project work?

It varies widely depending on the project.

What are your prefered moment(s) when you create?

When I'm about to finish a piece that has taken days, if not weeks, to finish and am about to take that last step to completion... I stop. I delay the gratification of a completed work because creating it is always such an exciting journey. So I savor the moment right before it's finished.

Arrow

What are you trying to share via your art?

My view of life, love, happiness, personal relationships. sexuality, beliefs and social issues.

How and why your work as changed since you started?

As I've grown older my subject matter has become less glossy and superficial, turning more to topics of social justice and passionate explorations of religion (or lack thereof)
