Why do I make art?I love to play with colors and cutouts and crayons and pencils.I get lost among the brushes and the glue and the papers.Time flies when I’m drawing.My imagination flies too and I create collages with bits and pieces from magazines, wrapping papers, postcards, cloth.But I am also a political being.I make art that says something, that exposes, shocks, questions, challenges.I believe the artist cannot isolate herself from the world and its struggles for justice and dignity, for freedom and an end to poverty.I do my part, however small, with my art, be it in collages or drawings or poems.
