Artist Statement

Gift from God - be His Instrument

I have a strong interest in drawing when I was little and throughout the years I acquired skills in textiles, computer design and teaching young children Arts and Crafts related subjects at high schools and Sunday school.

For many years, I have focused on developing my philosophy of life and transmitting it to my works. I know that in pursuing great creativity I need personal effort in acquiring knowledge developing skills, and also an environment where I can develop my proficiency in a professional art culture.

I fell in love with applying Textiles techniques as well as using recyclable and waste materials into my art makings after uni., even though it is quite different from what I did before. With this different approach, I constantly challenge myself to draw or paint into different textile-forms. In my portraiture pieces I am always aiming to express the pain or joy, the sadness or solitude of being human.

In Courage and Cowardice series, I hope to instill in the minds of the audience what it means to be brave, its nobility, its solidness, its power for good and the solly of cowardice, its uselessness, its temporary nature, its hopelessness. These qualities are to be related not only in the content of my images but also in how they are made.


Portrait Gods Love

My main subject matter is people, with LOVE as the theme to testify the love of God and from which I find it very enriching. I want my works to be expressions of my own aspirations and hope, of my own desires to be courageous in life, to be determined to do what is right, to uphold my principles and to faithfully and bravely serve the will of God I would like to delicate all my work to God as a testimony to the wonder of His love and all that He has done for us.


The Longer I Serve Him, the Sweeter It Grows

I was born in a Christian family with an artistic backgoround my father and brother are musicians that both art and music is the centre of my life. My mother is a Professor in Education. It has not been easy to have three artists living under the same roof because each one is occupied with ones own world of creativity. It leaves my mother by herself to clean up after us to make sure the smooth running of our daily life.

Ever since I was four, my parents would take my brother and I to sing gospel songs in different churches on a regular basis. I chose to become a christian and was baptised when I was sixteen. Gods love has always been my strength and comfort and without Him I wouldnt have gone this far.

God blessed me four beautiful children, amongst them was our baby boy who passed away in 2007. He was a very healthy happy 27 days old baby, so full of life. Despite the unbearable pain torturing me for as long as I could remember, it was God’s love through my eldest boy rescued me from the shadow of the valley of death. God even comforted me with two more beautiful-hearted girls.

A song called Mourn the Death of a Dream Acts 12v17 -- written by Michael Card

Cool morning shadows sadly shift across the floor, each time we say goodbye its harder than before. Even after all the pain of parting still we find, that we must mourn the death of the dreams we leave behind. As I turn my back on all that means the most to me, the sounds and smells, the light that dances on the sea. The greatest gamble is to act on the belief, that only the slave who leaves it all is truly free. The sacrifice that we both lay before His feet, a thousand moments that belonged to us, that now will never be. By faith we hold a better dream inside our hearts, a time when our family will never have to be apart. Till then we struggle with just what it really means, and we will mourn the death of our beautiful dreams. Mourn the death of our beautiful dreams.

My family has never stop serving God through art, music and testimonies. Together with my three children we will continue this commitment and so will our future generations.
