Sometimes it's really hard to find out good artists here on deviantart because it's full of stuff which is either weak art or not art at all. Fortunately there's still some works that are worth to be found as well, that's why you've won a watcher. Keep up the good work. :)

I would like to ask, if there is a place where we can read your answer in regards to question such as:
Why you do art? What does art mean for you? And do you consider art as something to find more about yourself?

Thank You! 

PS: I just love your work a lot. One of the very few traditional painters whom I follow. Really but really love them a lot :)

Thank you! glad you like my stuff!
Short answer: I make myself paint to prevent the state of antsy, unfulfilled anxiousness that happens when I haven't exercised my creativity that day. It is a compulsion. Not negative or positive, it just is. This is probably common among creative professionals. Also, I do it to provide for myself and my family, which is no small motivation. -D
