The brush of artistry and craftmanships is earned through devotion, determination and discipline. Everybody is an artist,created by God.Thus, a person who holds the three D’s above,mixed with art skills can only be held as one I needed.He is an artist, his enormous talent, imagination and vitality in his artistic pursuit makes him one.
