“The purpose of art is to create interest. When it engages the imagination, the viewer will relive the creative process of the artist through the artwork itself. It is the artist’s responsibility to draw images from the “voice within” to bring forth images that are so intensely personal that they are completely universal. The artist must be honest and inquiring so that his work will inspired the creative spirits of the audience. Then it will succeed.”
