Life for me began when I was six years old. It was the first time I took a piece of coal and expressed my most intimate feelings on paper. Watching my mother at work, her fingers moving deftly, she often wondered what she was thinking as she performed her normal tasks.


I channeled my energies into artistic expressions and learned the correct way to stroke the paper with my fingers and thumb and even the palm of my hand while making charcoal drawings. The black and white tones of this medium did not discourage me because I was not afraid to swim against the current. I knew there was more truth in black and white and that color, although attractive, was not enough of a challenge for me. I honed my skills in art college by drawing inspiration from childhood images, which had left an indelible impression on my mind. One exhibition followed another and with that grew my determination to embrace this as my art and my life. I've come a long way since I was that shy, reticent six-year-old who often wondered about life's secrets.


Experiences have been my domain and have taught me the realities of life, which no school can teach. Life has also left its marks, as my drawings portray. I am still learning and will continue to do so, so I am grateful to everyone who helped me, consciously or unconsciously, become who I am today. But above all they share a part of themselves with me, accepting my art. and my life.
