"Words are not always enough. I've often discovered that in my writing. There is so much inside all of us that we don't know how to phrase. Possibly, my painting continues when my words fail me. Could that be it? During the winter of 2013 something within me persuaded me that I should start painting; that I ought to give what was hidden within me life and shape on a canvas. That is when I began painting with acrylic paint. Now, someone might ask: to what use? The answer is: it will be useful to me, when I cannot fill an empty paper with thoughts I have on my mind."
