  • Education is vitally important to honing our craft, as it instils a sense of discipline into what we do. Those who teach become truly great if the students' desire to learn remains strong.
  • There are no such things as mistakes, especially in our careers. There are only lessons. The more lessons we learn, the better we get.
  • Every generation provides its own sets of disciplines and pursuits. We are currently living through the social media generation, which allows an instant connection between artist and audience.
  • Teamwork and collaboration remain the greatest way of developing our craft. By associating with those who have walked the path before us, we absorb and assimilate the talents and mindsets of the greatest.
