Inspiration comes to us in many forms, mine comes mainly from my love of life, my life of love & my frequent despair at being unable to master either. Works such as Sofia B, Ophelia & Upon Reflection have become landmarks in my development and creativity. I found purpose, confidence & renewed beliefs thanks to discovering great artists such as; John Minihan, Brian Duffy, Mary Ellen Mark, Bruce Landon Davidson, Eugene Richards, Terry O'Neill, David Bailey, Richard Tuschman, Spencer Tunick and many others.

In retrospect at age 16 my secondary school art teacher Mr Clarkin and my english teacher Sr. Josepha were huge influences on me creatively and in getting to know earlier works from photographers and artists I have discovered my own photographic art is more than worthwhile. God Bless the genius of light Caravaggio and the many artists and writers that evoke my images.

Don't think about art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it's good or

bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they're deciding, make even more art.

- Andy Warhol
