Some news about my love of art
My mind is full of images, colours and shapes.
I see words in my mind too.
I love to see art objects and paintings.
I never thought I could make art myself.
But thanks to my art mentor and collaborator Heidi,
I now choose colours and brush paint on to paper or canvas.
I like first to express the idea of a painting in words as a poem.
Then Heidi and I try out the colours and shapes.
I have watched videos about art and how to look at paintings.
Now I am getting brave enough to actually visit galleries.
Most surprising--other people like my art
and I have been invited to hang my canvases in art festivals
like the Eden Mills Arts Festival in 2016. See:
I cannot speak with my voice
but I have lots to say.
So I express myself in words and images as poetry
and with paint and shapes as art.
