What does art mean to me?

Art is emotions, imagination and sound. It's the language of the eyes, heart and mind that words can't always capture.

 

Since then, we have tried to support local non-profits, artists and arts organizations whenever we can.  Art has the power to challenge our thoughts, to heal our hearts, to calm our souls, to inspire our imaginations and to connect us to our roots.  Thus, it is so meaningful to me to be part of supporting this anthology.
