..Here it is, your shot of art with Jefra Linn..
Can you tell the readers a little bit about yourself, name, what country you live in, age etc? Hi! My name is Jefra Starr Linn and I'm a photographer. I live in Utah, USA with my artist husband (www.davidlinn.com) and three kids, plus our dog, cats, chickens and pony. I'm 35 years old.
-What inspired you to start being creative? I've always felt most comfortable when I was creating. At times it caused me to feel a bit alone, but it's always been a recurring thread in my life.
-Is making art your fulltime job, and if not, what else do you do? I'd say it's my part-time job, my fulltime job definitely is being a mom to the three beautiful kids that David and I have. Once they're all in school it'll be closer to a full-time job but as of right now there are just too many crazy demands.
-Have you gone to art school, if yes where did you go and what did you study? I majored in Fine Art in college, so I learned a lot of the basic principals and elements, but as for photography I'm largely self taught. However, I know I bring stuff I learned at school to my current art form.
-Where do you find inspiration? Everywhere. Largely from my life and children, but also I love historic and vintage photographers and the insanely creative photography I see in the Fashion industry.
-Do you have a favorite artist and if so who and why? Hmm...my favorite bookmark folder is massive, but here are some that I genuinely adore - the beautiful, quiet photographs of William Post - http://www.luminous-lint.com/app/photographer/William_B__Post/C/, Annie Leibovwitz is a biggie for me along with stylist Grace Coddington, the gorgeous historic photographs of photographer George Edward Anderson - I love how he tells the historic stories of our local people through his photographs - http://www.lib.byu.edu/dlib/anderson/, the photographs of Waldemar and Max are breathtaking and inspiring to me - http://www.waldemarandmax.com/main.html and the simple, earthy photographs of my friend Morgaine Owens http://morgaineowensphotography.com/ are always inspiring to me.
-Where can my readers see you`re work? Hmm, you can see me on Flickr - http://www.flickr.com/photos/jefralinn/ and my website - http://jefrastarrlinn.com/ and blog - http://jefrastarrlinn.com/blog - I am notoriously bad about updating these though. I also have a Facebook page - http://www.facebook.com/pages/Jefra-starr-linn-photographer/149963335041369
