“Luckily, I discovered this channel to express myself when I was a small kid. I used to dance ballet for 9 years and tried different creative things that triggered my attention and motivated me during my childhood, but drawing is the only one that still makes me really happy and still surprises me, especially during my working process. This is what creating art means to me. In general, it is the most beautiful form to express your emotions and share them with other people.
