“Sorrow” – Monoprint on Papyrus
“Alone” – Monoprint on Papyrus
“I have been making art for over 60 years, while I trying to balance the role of wife, mother and community involvement, with my creative work. All through these years my work has energized and sustained me, giving me reason for embracing life.
As I grow older, so my need for simplicity grows. I have learned that what really counts is the human factor, the connection and understanding between people.
I am delighted to have been invited to be part of this large international exhibition that encompasses artists from all over the world, regardless of their creed or the colour of their skin. Having lived under both Communist and Fascist regimes, I am aware of how precious freedom is. Thus I am suspicious of prescribed policies, be they in art or elsewhere. It is important to know that we are not alone in our striving for friendship and support for a better world.”
