A true artist is define not just from the awards and recognition he recieved. If you know how to appreciate and gives value to art, you are an artist in your own respective way. This is what I believe in. I am not a well known artist, I have no awards yet. But I believe that, with the drives indulging in me to share what I have and let other people know about it, I know I can be as effective as anyone else. writing, blogging, collecting arts. http://www.snappycanvas.com/.
