“I like to paint portraits the most. People model for me, and they’re all different. I want them to have different smiles, different backgrounds, different dresses that they’re wearing. I make art because it’s fun, because I can concentrate, and because I like working with my hands. First I put down a drawing in pencil, then in pen, and then watercolor paint. When I do all of the lines it’s finished. I want people to know that I made this, that this is the work I made.” -- VM
