"The act of painting became my meditation. I discovered the patterns that all things have; I played with light and shade, and the gaps in between, where the imagination grows. I recreated beautiful scenes, discovered tree spirits, captured a life dissapearing even as I watch. I rebelieved in God and the Universe and that everyone and thing has its rightful place in the universe. My spirit, the light inside me, expanded and reached to God, the Great Source of all, and I became a gifted painter."
