First of all, I have to like what I do, because that will drive me to do the things I want to do as an artist. I must not limit my thinking to things or materials that I can discover over time, because being a creator is endless learning. The mind needs to be open to things and events around in The social environment because that's why I take my art.
2. How has your style changed over time?
My style changes, maybe depending on the materials I have at that time and period. It also depends on whom I hang out with, also depending on my social environment, and my influences. It naturally changes because I still want to learn and enrich my ideas.
