What is your practice? I’m a body painter.

What objects did you bring to the shoot & why?
My paints because its what makes what I do unique….they are made for skin.

What do you do to revive your creative spirit?
I go searching for other creatives who inspire me and we spend time discussing and creating in order to get the ideas flowing…there`s nothing like being around people who get it …;)

What did you want to be when you were a kid?
A pilot…our home was under a flight path and I loved hearing the planes fly over

How does that relate to what you do now?

I always dreamed of the beauty and freedom of flying…… art is also based on freedom and beauty so I guess there`s the link hey?

How did you come to be involved in this project?
My fellow artist and inspirational photographer Chrissie and I go way back and I always wanted to do a project with her so when she asked me to take part in this I didnt hesitate

What does “Create or Die” mean to you?
It means creating is a need not a frivolous way to pass time…..I do believe though that most people create everyday even those who dont realise they are doing so…..some create paintings, some create meals, some create life…. the list goes on…….without creation humanity would literally die.
