q) How would you describe your style?

a)Organic. Occasionally creepy.

q) If people would like to contact you, how would you like to be contacted?

a)Eye to eye, ear to ear. I’ld like to meed the people. If not that, I think mail is a good thing nowadays.

q) Do you have any suggestions or advice for artists that are just starting out?
