    "There isn't one way of working and creating and every artist has his or her own way to create. Every step that you take adds to your knowledge, solidifies your base and enriches your vocabulary. In my own art, I am interested in limitations and not expansions - learning when an art work is finished and not overworked by expanding beyond the limits of necessity." (Mohammad Omar Khalil)
