I smelt the violets in her hand and asked, half in words,
half in signs, a question which meant "Is love the
sweetness of flowers?
- Helen Keller

I don’t know what I would do if I couldn’t create, it’s as natural to me as breathing, especially now that we have the means to achieve great art with digital photography. It’s so exciting and I feel that my creativity has finally come to fruition with these fantastic digital tools.
