Artist's Statement

Art improves society
Art builds community
Art as a tool for the "change"
Art to share
Art makes you breath
Art in the mornings to have a nice day
Art at night for the good sleep
Art making process feeds love
Art instead of guns
Art is better than drugs
Art to hold the tears
Art keeps away the knife
Art for the street's kids
Art accomplish D.I.Y. dreams
Art needs you
Art never leaves you alone
