"Art can influence the way we feel and has a positive effect on us. The mix of colors used is intended to be calming and make us smile. There is a message of love and healing behind my work and it’s my inspiration behind the Love Story Theme. As part of the theme I explore different types of love, from love of self to puppy love. Love has the power to heal and so necessary during these uncertain times." - Ro Martinez
