“I believe that art is a manifestation of love, loving the nature around us and the people we share our world with. When we truly love what we do, we do it whole-souled and become professionals at it. Art is a powerful tool and a silent International language that can convey messages to the world reflecting culture, history and civilization. This language can speak up, announce, make known, unify, bring together, support, encourage, share, care for, show compassion and kind feelings toward all. In two words; Art is to LOVE.”
