You are only limited by your imagination. You can accomplish whatever you choose to do.

I strongly believe in the statement of R.W. Emerson that “What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us”.  When we have courage and determination, sky is the limit as to what we can achieve.

Painting – Mixed-media

This work has been inspired by the struggles of many foreign students; some I studied with and others I got to know through friends. The challenges that face foreign students are enormous. As I got to know them, I realized how much they have to struggle in order to complete their education in Canada.

This painting was inspired by watching their struggle, their determination to overcome all obstacles, their inner strength and courage to keep fighting against all odds and their strong resolve to find ways of making it work.

Indeed, this is not just a story of their struggle. It is also the story of my life, your life and that of all the Joes or Jills unknowns. I have recently graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in visual arts from Université de Moncton (UdeM). I have acquired other degrees including a Masters degree but this by far has been the most challenging of the degrees to obtain, given that I knew very little French when I began my studies at UdeM. Clearly, life does hurl huge challenges and it’s only through sheer determination, inner strength and courage that we can surmount them.
