"I feel as artists we have the joy and the obligation to connect and express ourselves in the highest most sincere way, allowing our art to meet people’s hearts, letting them in turn feel the joy of more fully expressing themselves when wearing what we create or applying the techniques we have taught. We should never stop that flow.
Teaching is an essential part of this process, sharing techniques and enthusiasm while connecting with others so they themselves can fly. "
