"Within every work of art exists a life and a message which are witness to the multitude of human emotions. From within the colors and the forms comes this magic. But nothing surges outward without the dialog between the Artist, the Work, and the Public.This dialogue, while unspoken, is fundamental and necessary in my life, and without it, I cannot create"
