Do you have a personal message for students?
The thing I love most about art is that it is different for everyone. There is no one way to approach or appreciate a piece of art; the beauty lies in its subjectivity. I believe the most important thing about teaching is to foster individuality and confidence in one's ability. The best teachers I ever had showed me the path, but didn't hold my hand as I walked down it.
