“I feel happy when I am holding a pencil and working it across the paper. I want to show
my feelings to the others. The art is my best friend: It was always with me. When I was a
baby, my mom used to take me to the galleries. I love art galleries. I like to watch the
colors on the pictures and I like to see how other artists show their feelings.
What the art means to me? When I’m sad, I draw or paint and I feel better after that.
When I like somebody I wish to make a picture for him or her. When I started going to a
daycare, I missed my mom a lot. So, I made drawings for her and I felt much better. I felt
like...she was there with me. ”
