What does art mean to you? My art is the only way I can express a thought. It is actually the only time in which I can comfortably be me. I get lost in the moment of creation there is no right and wrong when I am alone working on piece.
What is your definition of art? Art is the beautiful end result of hard work and creativity.
How did you discover your talent? I was around 4 or 5 years old when I used to watch Bob Ross painting on TV. He would paint beautiful landscape paintings in less than 30 minutes. I was amazed by that. I would try to draw what I see on his painting using crayons and notebook paper.
