My grandmother used to make beautiful quilts. I loved to help her pick out the colors. She taught me how to sew and make quilts when I was only seven or eight years old. I used to collect my scraps of cloth to make quilts right along with her. And I used to make my own school clothes.
I sit in my little corner and paint until, sometimes, late into the night. And I take my time. And I put a cross somewhere in everyone of my paintings. I do that because I thank God for everything. Without Him, I couldn't do any of this.
