Your weakness? Your strength?

weakness – lack of free time         strength – an ability to teach myself

Working in multi media enrich my work with different expressions and experiments, giving me the ability to approach things from various angles.

When did you decide to become a multidisciplinary artist?

Year 2003, when I bought my first digital camera. 

What do you find most fascinating about the creative process?

The gap between the idea and the result.
