Work is made in 1997. I didn’t realise it as a turning point then yet. The actual point of the outbreak was in 2008. The egg shell is broken on that very moment.

I left my country, emigrated, left my husband, left all the illness and deaths, left all misery, financial problems, left my job behind me, I didn’t think I acted according what was the best…

Not so good at all, I know now, but then it was a substitute for freedom or even suicide. Don’t worry I don’t believe that killing yourself for being freed works…it works the opposite is my opinion.

One thing was made crystal clear: I am not only for others to serve, I am here also to be myself with all my needs and passions. It was the moment to learn to love myself for what I can and what I am. Self conscience/ self comfydence. No don’t correct me this is a made up word by me.
I’m not passed for that exam yet….but still learning…

It happens often in my art, the abstraction of the thinking appears suddenly ready to expressed.
Most of the time it’s ahead of the actual happenings in life itself…

Life is all about creativity
The desire is to go beyond the Normal way of Living.
It’s all about the Xtra things that life can offer you.
Life is full of little wonders like new languages, colours, energies and feelings.
Search for them and keep these little treasures in your Heart.
Would like to share it with you…exchange and be inspired.
You’re invited and welcome to visit my portfolio.

    I’m with Sylvia dear Patjila, sorry to hear that you have had a rough time of it, but there is light at the end of the tunnel for you – I’m so pleased that you can express yourself in your art, it is always a good outlet to be able to be creative at times that are good and bad. It’s strange isn’t it when it appears ahead of it’s time? That happens to me too. Love your comfydence word, should be in the Oxford Dictionary!! Instant fave! S:)x

  • Thank you Sandi….yes you’re right it was always art already but never priority for me, now it is..
