This is a re-working of one of my favourites, “Don’t Grow Up Too Quickly”, which I have now removed from viewing. Photographs and textures from my own stock taken with a Panasonic Lumix FZ20, layered and blended in Photoshop CS3.

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.
