How did you get started in skinning?
”I guess I got the bug when I customized my tricycle with finger paint. wink.”

Who are your favorite skinners?
”That’s a hard one…there are so many great skinners out there to pick just one.”

Has anyone of them, inspired you to make a skin? If so, elaborate a bit.
”I suppose you could say I was inspired by The MasterBaron’s work.
MB does some fabulous work and trying to figure out how he did something has allowed me to see other ways to be creative.”

Of the skins you made, which is your favorite?
”They all are…it’s kinda hard to pick just one. If I had to I’d pick Rough Seas for Dreams and Sunset Sail for walls.”

Do you have anything you are working on now?
”I usually have a couple Dreams at various stages of completion. Right now I have a space scene that I’m creating with one of RND’s walls and an ocean scene that I’m messing with. I liked the way the Ominous Horizon Dream turned out so well that I’m stoked on creating a couple more.”
