MY VISION:
To promote the Art and it’s Artist. To give them ideas, encourage them to learn to use their God-given talent. I’m promoting any type of art, music, film, craft and theater. An artist studies all mediums and is not afraid to use it. To be creative, you have to experiment. Not just to paint but to know you’re not just a painter, but an artist. I share my knowledge about art and I’ve been doing this for a long time now. I teach and supervise in every company I worked for, and some of my students became professional artists having their own art shops and own jobs. They now open their mind and heart to be a better artist. Being creative is what it is all about and being unafraid to explore, and the truth that we are a part of this world. We aim to teach everybody and to let them appreciate art.
