* Did you want to be an artist as a child? If so, why?
Strangely enough, I wanted to be a comic actor when I was a kid. Now, people call me a “dark artist,” but I’m just using images instead of a psychologist! I just need to express myself.
* You’ve been working with digital art since 1998. Any other mediums you have used?
No, I’ve always been a digital “worker.” Started my first graphics work on the legendary Commodore Amiga with Deluxe Paint.
* Have you been to school for art or are you self-taught?
Self-taught. I’m really familiar with computers. My first one was an Apple II when I was nine years old. I remember tons of “syntax errors” to my inputs. Then I started with Applesoft Basic.
* Who would you consider your influences?
Hans Rudolf Giger and Dave McKean, on the graphic side. I get lots of inspiration from music. I listen to almost everything; from punk to classical. There’s also a lot of influences coming from B-Horror movies.
* What have you learned from them and how has it contributed to your style?
I just admire their work. Sometimes I read comments about my works like “That’s Giger-esque” and i just smile…
* You use digital tools to alter photography, but where do the photographs themselves come from? Do you take them yourself?
Some are mine, some are just stock photos. I don’t want “great shots” to start my works. Sometimes i start with crappy low res photos. I don’t have a set path for this.
* What equipment do you use?
It’s not so important. Nikon DSLR, sometimes Canon. I really don’t care about hardware. Photoshop is useful but I can do the same work with other tools.
* Describe your process
I usually start with an idea while listening to music. Then I try to find the right photo, the right texture, the right mood. That can take a few hours or a few days. Sometimes I find things in my trash that other people find wonderful.
* One effect in particular, that of flesh stripped away, revealing muscle and sinew is very impressive. Could you explain how you achieve this effect?
Just texturing, it is technically easy to achieve. Many layers with manual displacement of the texture. The real trouble is getting that kind of effect within a serious mood. I don’t want a comic vignette, horror is a serious thing. Realism is key.
* Your works often have text associated with them. Are they a part of the piece meant to describe or augment the work? Are they an afterthought or the inspiration?
All my works have lyrics related with something from my life. Sometimes it is not related to the work directly, sometimes I just need to cry with someone :)
* Where do you draw your inspiration and how do you pursue or develop an inspiring idea?
Sex, love, nature! And music, yes I can’t live without music!
* What’s next for you? How do you see your art changing, progressing?
My art is not changing, I’m always the same. I just don’t want to die without a few scars.
* What inspired you to use martial art film stills in the backdrop of your website?
I’m a superhero.
Okay, I’m not.
* What trends do you see in photography/graphic design these days?
Too many copycats. I hate it when someone asks how to reproduce a work of mine. I’m not angry but I don’t understand WHY. Try to find YOUR way, don’t follow the paths of others!

blogged today on decor8, an interview with Photographer Karen Wise. Image copyright Karen Wise Photography, New York, NY
So me and my friends have started up a subculture zine called Blazed and Bemused. This is when we interviewed Keel Her for issue numero eins
Full interview HERE
• What is your full name? Do you have a nickname?
My legal name is Amelia Renee Duchane but don’t call me Amelia, my name is Amy.
• What is your hair color? Eye color?
My hair is auburn and my eyes are ... well, they’re pretty much the same color.
• What kind of distinguishing facial features do you have?
My gramma used to say I have almond shaped eyes, I think they look kinda sleepy.
• Do you have a birthmark? Where is it? What about scars? How did he get them?
I’ve got one on the back of my neck just below the hairline. Yeah, I’ve got a couple. The biggest one is on top of my right bewb - you’ll figure out how I got that if you read my story. I also have a few on my left hand from the time I put it through a window and one on the inside of my right thigh down by my knee. I got that one climbing over a chain link fence.
• Do you have any other distinguishing features?
I’ve got a koi tattoo on my right foot, a single earring in my right ear, a nose ring and a bunch of piercings in my left ear. I don’t remember how many.
• Who are your friends and family? Who do you surround herself with? Who are the people you are closest to? Who do you wish you were closest to?
My real father died in a car accident with my grandfather just after I was born so I never knew them. My mother remarried before I was even a year old and I had a sister before I turned two and my step brother moved in with us when I was fourteen. I’ve never considered any of them ‘family’. I tried to get along with Brenda but we were just too different. The only REAL family I ever had was my father’s mother. Gramma Rose. I haven’t had a ‘friend’ since she died and I stopped going to Bible Camp over the summer. I wish I were closer to my mother but before her accident, she was the type who lived for her man, I existed in the background and I was a reminder of the husband she lost. After her accident ... well, she’s retreated so far into her medication haze, she probably hasn’t even realized I don’t live there anymore.
• Where were you born? Where have you lived since then? Where do you call home?
I was born in nowhere Dunboro PA and I’ve lived there my whole life. I’ve never traveled more than forty five minutes in any direction
• Where do you go when you’re angry?
Downstairs to workout. I live above a street martial arts studio.
• What is your biggest fear? Who have you told this to? Who would you never tell this to? Why?
My biggest fear is I’ll never get out of this town; I’ll never amount to anything and I’ve never told this to anyone. And I never will, people have a nasty habit of using your fears against you.
• Do you have a secret?
• What makes you laugh out loud?
• When have you been in love? Had a broken heart?
I had a crush on a boy when I was in ninth grade but his brother was best friends with my stepbrother ... When the rumors started, no guy was interested in me unless it was to make crude suggestions or propositions.

If you're not familiar with American Elegy, be sure to have a look. A lot of my favorite photographers have been featured there and I've also discovered new ones through the site. Randy is bringing his own impressive work to a larger audience with his new blog on The Huffington Post, so it's a pretty exciting time for the site.
