What do you currently have in ShopColumbia?
The work I have now for ShopColumbia are my photos. “Chicago Flag,” “Mirror,” “Chicago Blue,” “Reflections,” and “Penny for your Thoughts?”

What inspired you to create this series of work?  

I was inspired by the city of Chicago to tap more into my creative side. Chicago is a city filled with art everywhere, and the city is beautiful, so I wanted to capture it. 

In what ways do you think you have benefited from being a ShopColumbia artist?
I think having my art at ShopColumbia benefits me to expose my art and to be confident to show my moments in Chicago.

Give us an update about recent projects/artistic life events; what’s next for you?
I will be showing some of my photos at East Islip Public Library on Long Island, where I am from. Since I've taken many photos of the city life, I am now focused on taking pictures of nature.
