Art for me is one of the most versatile forms of creativity. It can be an excellent tool for relaxation and self-discovery but can also be used to address and explore a wide range of subject matter ranging from mathematics to social issues. Art holds no limits. There is a type of art that speaks to everyone if you look for it!
