“[Art] has no limitations. You can express yourself freely with colours, lines, shapes – whatever you want. That’s my favourite thing about art.” – Justin Wang
“[Art] has helped me in dealing with my emotions and anxieties, as well as some of my proudest moments in finding great success.” – Allie Cook
“My art is a process of stages and evolution of ideas. It may start off as one thing and end as something completely different.” – Adam Kuraitis
“It's usually a combination of thinking and feeling for when I'm getting to create something, based on what I want the finished product to be. Sometimes I will be very technical and detailed with it and plan everything out before touching anything, but others times it's fun to go for it and see what happens.” – Sydney Webb
