GL:  When were you first inspired to create digital art?

LM:  WHEN I NO LONGER USED TRADITIONAL ART METHODS SUCH AS PAINTING AND DEVELOPING MY OWN BLACK AND WHITE AND COLOUR PRINTING. I STARTED WITH DIGITAL ART THROUGH PHOTOSHOP, THEN DIGITAL EDITING AND FINALLY COMPOSING DIGITAL MUSIC. BASICALLY TEACHING MYSELF DIFFERING DIGITAL DISCIPLINES. WHENEVER I SAW DIGITAL IMAGERY I WANTED TO KNOW HOW TO CREATE IT.

GL:  How did you come up with the name Lush Montana?

LM:  ALWAYS GOOGLED MONTANA AND LOVED THE SCENERY, BUT I’D ALWAYS COME UP WITH THE TERM LUSH MONTANA. TRUE!!

GL:  Where can readers go to connect with you and your work (social networking sites, etc.)?
