"I have no professional training in art. My creative imagination is a gift from God. When I am creating I am satisfied, I am free! I no longer just exist, I am alive! I do not feel worthless, hopeless, alone, sad, afraid, ashamed, guilty, down-hearted, unloved, uncared for, doubtful, and discontented and the likes. Above all I am able to love my Creator and my fellow humans. My experience is gratifying! I can see the real me in my works. At the beginning I created to feel better. Now I create because I feel better. My works are not thought out. I do not think when I create, rather than thinking of what I am creating I feel what I create. Therefore, I believe what I am inside shines through my creations. These images mirror the beauty within me."
