Personal Profile

I am eager and always young, always learning, creative, loyal, honest and fighting for correct treatment and payment of artists and art world wide, not singling out some preferred artists because they are "blockbuster material" or in other words: the next big thing. In art it should not be about: better, bigger, larger, more expensive and more spectaculair.

Great art is great, and I think everyone should be in, and to help reaching this, young / starting artist empowerment is key!
