What interested you about becoming
– I began private art lessons in adolescence and have spent my entire life in the arts. I started shooting seriously about four years ago because I find the camera the best tool of the moment to capture what I can see in my mind. I try to take the same approach to creating photos as I did painting.
Where do you find inspiration to
make your photographs?
– I can literally recall my memories as vivid as watching a movie--I can play them over and over--every detail from dates and places, to what people were wearing; sometimes I can literally see words. It's the reason I'm a cinema buff; my inspiration for creating is to show how my mind interprets things.
What do you most like to
– The ultra-feminine: exquisite makeup, hair, clothing, petite profiles, long thin limbs, etc. I've always been in love with the female form, even as a child. My ideal aesthetic was heavily influenced by what I saw growing up--and is what I was attracted to from the beginning. That's what I most love.
Who are your favorite photographers?
– I take more of my inspiration from cinema than photographers but I guess I would have to tip my hat to Paolo Roversi, Ellen von Unwerth, Juergen Teller, Steven Klein, and Sally Mann. From times past I would say Helmut Newton and Man Ray.
