" I love to design, paint and create anything. I derive great pleasure and fulfilment from turning an idea into a finished product. I strive to make my work original and exciting so as to have an emotional impact on the viewer, surprise them, delight them, make the painting memorable so that the audience are curious and want to look at it, touch it, keep it. I want people to be as passionate about what I do as I am" - Amelia Farrugia.
