"It is not always easy to remain as a creative artist, because we all know that artists also need to make money, and being a creative artist doesn’t necessarily mean you can make a living out of it. However, you wouldn’t want to stop being one no matter how difficult it is because you are so lucky to be given a chance to share your thoughts, feelings and ideas with everyone. Because I believe that anything warm and cheerful is highly contagious."
