To me, art is the most wonderful thing in the world, that we can express our emotions to others in ways that are beyond words. It is in a sense a higher form of communication.
Estelle loves to paint emotional pieces, that beckon the inner part of ourselves. She believes longing and desires that we hold are just under the surface can be released easily using abstraction. It is not what is seen in art but in ourselves, that is art's greatest gift.
