“I think we are born with the Intuition of what is Beautiful and what is Good. Naturally, we are attracted to Good and Beauty and for me, these two things are represented in Art and People. I try to Celebrate Love, Respect, and Diversity without needing a canon, stereotype or model that dictates what is Healthy or Beautiful. For me, the Human Being is endowed with the Intuition necessary to reject or be attracted to what makes us good or what can make us ill.
It is necessary to use our experience and Intelligence to develop this Intuitive Sense and not allow it to degenerate or atrophy.
True Beauty is Always Natural.”
