“I believe that art is not so much a form; Its creativity that can be expressed in any form! I would describe my style as a realistic visionary, meaning my art realistically portrays ideas found only in my mind. The message behind a lot of my work is pass the inspiration along; I am endlessly inspired by life, and creating art is my humble attempt to share what, in nature, in people, and dreams, inspires me and hope that others will be inspired as well to open up their creativity to see the beauty around us” - Bianca.
