“Art is a force of movement and at the same time it is the only place in the world for me. I started as a boy driven and on fire for forms and beauty. As I seek change and color I feel very grateful that I have spent my life in this world of art because it is limitless with challenges. Thus, my sense of accomplishment is enormous. I am driven with passion. I feel that with this passion my work has integrity. It is, in its opportunities, all a gift to me.” – Danny Perkins
