I decided to be the best the day some people I used to call family insulted me for painting their door for free

Inks Creation: That’s what inspired me and kept me going till now

Inks Creation: Striving to be the best in what I do
Inks Creation: And guess what

I’ll say time, hard work and dedication changes everything… just keep doing what you know how to do best…
