Hello, my friends! We're in a deep freeze right now, so let's look at some warm and colourful creativity, shall we?
Atabey Sanchez-Haiman: "I decided that I wanted to create a studio of my own where people could not only buy my work, but also feel that they were entering one of my bright and happy illustrations. I feel that the media nowadays focuses too much on sadness and misery and my art is my small contribution towards promoting a positive outlook instead. When people come into my studio they automatically smile and a smile can go a long way to making a difference. I realize how powerful art can be in eliciting emotions and therefore my artistic philosophy is to make art that makes you smile. I make art as an antidote to unhappiness."
