I paint out of some sort of compulsion. I started to paint when I felt that what I was experiencing was beyond the realm of words, and that needed to be expressed if I wanted to remain sane. Painting for me is a medium that allows me to reclaim what erodes in everyday life. It helps me to create a center, space where I can return and reclaim my equilibrium. For me, the process of painting is cathartic. It’s not about the color or the techniques. It’s about the life I live and engage with. I have learned to surrender to the process and let the presence emerge.
The process of painting has taught me a lot. When I paint, I sense that there is something bigger than me, which takes over my entire being. For me, creating art from my authentic self is important. I wish and pray that I am always able to create from my spiritual center, and my creation brings joy and peace to the viewer.
