How easy can one get the act of being one like you, an artist i mean?

Its not easy... one will need to be observant, make researches, be patient, be persistent, has to practice , be creative and formless.

Do you intend going bigger than you currently are in the art industry?

Yes I do... growth is essential.

Any plans to establish your own art studio?

Currently working on getting a proper home studio, but then I might be using galleries to interact with the public and clients.

Any plans to sometime in the future host an art exhibition?

Yes... for now am still trying to understand how the system works.

As an Artist and a person, how can people get to interact with you, see images and videos of your Art works. Do you use Facebook, Instagram, Twitter etc. Can you share your social links so people can connect with you?
