Abstract
Nobody can imagine their life as full and beautiful without art. Art is beauty, play, creation, imagination, expression, inspiration and intuition. I believe that artists express their emotional world through creativity. Art is the center of feelings and emotions of a person coming out of many different life experiences. Art advances these life events, not necessarily for representing them, but for raising emotions to bring up feelings buried within a person's soul. Through feelings and emotions, art and creativity connects to the center of who we are as humans, inspires us and helps us preserve our sense of humanity, and further evolves our senses of who we are. I believe that art is a release and expansion of emotions and imagination that can help us therapeutically solve many issues that we as humans are faced with.
