(foreword by Joanne Carter)
“Before I start, I would like to express profound thanks to Joanne for the opportunity to give a nod of appreciation to the artists who continue to influence me”
The image that is currently in the forefront of my mind
This photo by Robin Cohen blows my mind. It is absolutely gorgeous, and I never tire of staring at.
The image that changed my life
I love the stylised photography of Jack Barnosky. Rather than a single image, I would say his oeuvre has profoundly influenced me. His work makes me appreciate the power of editing.
The image I wish I had created
At heart, I am a collage artist. But Meikel S Church is a master of the medium. I am always impressed by his profound efforts. Ergo, I am envious.
Artwork that has influenced my art
I owe a huge debt of gratitude to fellow Montrealer, Roger Guetta. Before I met Roger, I was oblivious regarding sites like TheAppWhisperer, online. He turned me on to Joanne, and numerous other digital artists. Even better, he is a fantastic creative force who has influenced my artistry and appreciation for mobile photography.
The image that is the most underrated
I am not sure the work of Helen Breznik is underrated. But certainly, her work is worthy of wider appreciation. Her style absolutely appeals to my aesthetic.
The image that changed my mind
Rather than changed my mind, I would say this image, by Eliza Badoiu, opened my mind. I find the editing superb!
The most recent image that made me smile
How can you not smile when you gaze upon this masterpiece, by Eleni Gemeni?
The most recent image that me sad
I think it is a sign of an incredible talent when an artist creates something that is both tragic and beautiful simultaneously. This image by Juta Jazz does just that. I find it breathtaking!
My comfort images
There is something playful about the visual works of Diana Nicholette Jeon. I love her stylised tableaus very much; they appeal directly to my heart.
The image I would most like to give as a gift
I would love to have a signed Patricia Januszkiewicz hanging on one of the walls of my home. So naturally, her art would make an ideal gift!
My Earliest Artistic Memory
Kristie Benoit was one of the first digital artists I discovered online. Her work continues to resonate in me to this day. She is an enormous talent worthy of attention and praise.
