My opinion is that we are at our most creative when we are very young! I think creative people have to fight to keep that sense of wonder and whimsy as they get older.

Every child is an artist. The problem is how to
remain an artist once he(or she:P)grows up.

- Pablo Picasso

this is so true. I wish I was as talented as her:(
