Art is limitless and it compels me to work. We are creatures who need the near and the familiar as well as the exotic. Art arises in the human spirit beyond the reach of words, from the levels of our deepest memories.

I have to find the reason for painting a thing. Actually, I don't care whether a painting is representational or purely abstract in its form, either it's good or bad.
