"… I can not say what it is in the words
but I feel it, I can almost see it

That’s why I draw
I draw because I can not lose my way
or life

That is my drawing
I do in my drawing what I do in my
heart

My process of drawing is my process of
getting rid of the outer part and finding
the most inner part of me."
