“I believe we should respect our imperfections and embrace them. That’s why on every painting I leave a part of myself…a bit of my soul, imperfections and all. I feel the need to go as far as I can…to just let go and fly! The same is true of my acting. When you let go and fly there is total freedom. I paint to find that freedom”
