I have been a practicing artist since I was five.
I always love looking at nature, animals, trees, etc and then to replicate that vibrant energy and vision was quite a fun challenge!
An artist translates tears, laughter and curiosity itself.
For me, art has been a lovely means of creativity, escape and reflective communication.
I love this quote:
“My Art is a means of praying and crying at the same time and the highest expression of love and solitude.” -Guayasamin
