Bottle House - 8x10 Print

What led you to start creating your art/craft?

My mother was always into photography and it was just natural for me to start taking pictures. I got my first camera when I was about 9 at Disney World, and have been shooting ever since. I became really serious about it about 6 years ago.

How did you decide what medium you wanted to work with?

I struggled between film and digital and which way did I want to go, but now I just do both!

What aspect of creating your art/craft do you find the most enjoyable?

I love seeing the final product and seeing others reactions to it. It's nice to see what you've accomplished.

If you had ato choose a fruit OR a vegetable to describe your art/craft, what would you choose and why?

I would say a watermelon because it's colorful and juicy, and it usually reminds you of good times. I think watermelon is a relaxing, fun simple fruit, just like my work.

If you had to choose one other medium in which to display your "creativity", what would that be, and why?

If I didn't do photography there are a lot of other things I would like to try...I think magnets are fun or some kind of mixed media.

What message, if any, do you want to convey with your art/craft?

I want people to look at my work and think that I have different and interesting shots. Ones you'll never get bored of looking at. I want them to think "how did she do that??"

What advice do you have for other artists/crafters?

I would advise to just truly love what you're creating, and believe that you can be successful in it. Just work really hard and put a lot of effort into it and always try to improve.

Dana, I enjoyed having you here on DZFANTASY as a featured artist, and wish you every success with your photography! Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts and photos with everyone.
