I value our freedom of choice and expression, if it makes you happy and you are not impeading someone else's freedom or rights then go for it!

I take inspiration from everywhere I can, other works of art, magazines other photographers and even conversations. If I am inspired I am touched emotionally and that usually envokes an idea....so watch this space
