Art has never been about boundaries for me, rather finding the edges and breaking past into the unknown. It's a matter of creative solutions, when there doesn't seem to be an end. I strive to challenge myself to always be better, and to take on what scares me.
"Art is what you can get away with" - Andy Warhol
