We all know how time can pass by so quickly, so how do we make the most of each moment? I try to pay attention to each detail, when you look back at something it can feel like a blur so I try and take notice of the small things that make that moment special.

Artists of all kinds are always searching for inspiration. I have found that the more you search the harder it is to find. As a child I just drew things or I made things, I didn’t think about it. Before I knew what inspiration was I drew women…

They saying goes “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” and I don’t disagree but beautiful isn’t just what you see it’s a feeling. Feeling beautiful, confident or sexy is more important because without it nothing else matters. What makes you feel sexy? Is it the same…
