Can you describe your process including how long a piece of art or photography takes you from concept to complete?
Typically, I don’t start with a theme, usually its just an image or two that inspires me to try and make something.
Sometime it takes an hour or so, other times I might be working on a piece for days, when it takes to long it usually not that good.

 

What part of your process do you love the most?
I ‘m not sure, I just get lost in it, and helps me to not think of all the other things I need to do.
