DB: I’ve lived in
When did you first become interested in your art form?
DB: I always enjoyed playing with my dad’s Minolta SLR. After taking my first photography class in high school, I was completely addicted. I took classes in college as well, but found it difficult to continue after graduation, since I didn’t have a darkroom available. After purchasing a digital SLR, I leapt full force back into photography and haven’t looked back.
What inspires you?

DB: I certainly am influenced by natural
What techniques do you use the most in your work?
DB: I am nearly exclusively a digital photography. The majority of my work in the beginning was black and white. In the past few months, I’ve been doing a lot more color work, and I’m really enjoying it. I love dabbling in new techniques, from sandwiching photos, to digital photograms, to TTV style images, to digital painting.
DB: Getting over creative blocks is always a challenge. Keeping my work consistent while maintaining the freedom to experiment with different techniques can also be difficult. And of course, the buisiness side of things, like marketing and accounting, are challenging for me – especially when I just want to create!
How did you find Etsy?
DB: I actually followed the artist Annejulie over from deviantART.
