“For me, painting is a silent language,” she says. “It is seeing with new eyes, going beyond habituation. The vitality, light, and sheer vibrancy of Nature draws me in. It is a heartfelt communion with beauty and mystery. I ask myself how I can convey the feeling and mood if my experience? As you focus on each painting, may it evoke in you and memory, feeling or experience that you treasure.”
