We are delighted to bring you the twenty first in our brand new Mobile Art and Photography that has Influenced Me series of interviews at TheAppWhisperer. Within this series, we contact well established and highly regarded mobile photographers and artists and ask them a sequence of questions. Each one relates to mobile art and photography that has inveigled and continues to impact them, by other mobile artists throughout the world. Our twenty first interview is with Jo Sullivan from the United States, enjoy!
In this interview, Sullivan cites work by: Ile Mont, Vermeer, Klimt, Dorothea Lange, Margritte, Lorenka Campos, Oola Cristina and Anita Magsaysay-Ho.

The Image That Is Currently In The Forefront Of My Mind
The piece I just completed of Ile Mont for the Portrait of an Artist interview.
The Image I Wish I Had Created
Girl with a Pearl Earring by Vermeer. His use of light is astonishing and I immediately fell in love with his work. I, to this day, try to create the gorgeous light in my works that I find in his.
That piece is tied with The Kiss by Klimt. My love for the surreal and strong use of colour come directly from his work.
The image I wish I had created
The Kiss. I wish I had that talent.
