"When creating works of art it is important to me that they are meaningful, beautiful, positive and emotional. Beautiful because there is too much ugliness in todays world. Meaningful because without meaning life would be empty and worthless. Positive because positive art is my escape from the hardship of reality. Emotional because when we feel we live. Art is my past, my present and my future . It is my life."
