"The day I decided I wanted to be an artist was life changing. It was a first, giant step in a journey of endless self-discovery. You see, in art, there are no rules. I can draw whatever I want, however I want. It's exhilarating to know whatever I'm making is 100% me. That's my creativity, my message, my hard work, my passion. Everyone thinks that as the creator, there's no shock or awe for me once the art is completed, but it's not true. I'm taking it in just as much as my audience, if not more. When I look at my art, I'm completely enthralled. It's like getting a glimpse at a personal galaxy within you. And the more you create, the more you keep creating, because you want to get another glimpse of that world, and more than anything, you want others to see it too; all the colors, the beauty, the sensations. The day I decided I wanted to be an artist was life changing. Because for once, I didn't look at the world and wonder what people could offer me. For once, I looked at people and wondered what world I could offer them."
