‘Painting is my way to experiencing the liberation of thoughts and feelings and ultimately my soul.  It takes me to that wonderful space where I can be with my instinct and dance in symphony of colors in rhyme. ‘

She pursued her training in visual arts mostly through self-study and observations.  She also received first-hand experience through a short term apprenticeship with Ottawa’s artist Nym Gautama.  Her more recent work has been in oil and acrylic.
