"I believe, an effective visual artist must have intuition. Although intuition cannot be learned, it can be nurtured, and education awakens the senses to digest life. To nurture intuition requires an understanding of psychological and social responses to visuals. All which can be developed through improving ones understanding of people, cultures, and environments."
