Q & A

  • The reveal! When a client gasps at the images I’ve been commissioned to create – it’s almost as though she’s seen herself for the very first time. This is the stuff that gives me goosebumps!
  • To overcome creative blocks in my work I push myself outside of my comfort zone and learn something new. Ask me about the year I taught myself the fine art of selfies.
  • Never-ending supply of Reese’s peanut butter cups. Phone. Laptop. Internet connection. Camera.
  • I wish for a world where acceptance comes from within.
