    Artistic Statement.

    Michael Oliver

    "My creative person came with my birth package. This ability allows me to bring my artistic sensitivities in order to translate them into physical visual forms of my personal expressions into the world as a Pygmalionesque life. My creativity intuition has increased with my maturity, in time and life’s experiences.

    For me it is the only one of my natural sense’s that continues to increases naturally and therefore becomes more attuned with the evolution of my physical self in cohesions with that of my artistic ascetics forms."
