Q: Do you believe in natural talent or practice and study?
I believe both are necessary. While natural talent gives one a good start point it takes much practice and study to take it to a higher level.
Just like for any gem – it takes fine polishing and skills to make it shine brightly.
Q: Which is, according to you, the most important “rule” in art?
There is freedom in art itself. I don’t want to set any rule on it and I just want my pieces to bring positive energy and joy to others.
Q: Please share some piece of advice for the digital artists just starting out in this field.
Technology keeps changing and new media keeps appearing. As such there should be more and more opportunities and room for development for digital artists going forward.
