"Art is the very mirror of who we are, our aspirations and hopes, our fears and struggles, our loves and hates.
It reflects our internal self, our dignity and weakness, our inadequacies as well as strengths. Art is therefore a window to a world envisioned by faith alone.
The world of the saints and angels, the heaven of God. It is from the creator that we originate and have our being. And so the world of art we create, that is His gift of inspiration to us. The gift of his tender love.
~Michael Joseph Fuchs
