I am inspired. I love the intimate interaction that is portrayed in a few of the prints-- that is beautiful to me. These prints have given me a slew of ideas for a new series... :)

The use of negative space in "Franka on her Deathbed" is intriguing to me. It adds to the weightlessness of letting go or maybe transitioning into afterlife. Negative space is a tool that I often forget about, but it can add significant focus and drama to your content.
