“Being an artist means seeing who I am as a person. Seeing what I can do, but also, to make an audience feel how I feel is the most important thing for me. Because without feelings and emotions in performing of any sort or painting, say, no-one’s gonna get who you are as a person, and I think that’s important that people get who you are and who I am. With me, I’d like to inspire people. There’s not many learning disabled artists out there. And if I could inspire someone in some form or other with my music or my art, that would be the most important thing as well as how people feel. That would be important to me as well."
