My vision began with a desire to create a single piece of art of a square or a rectangle by using something circular or round. As I sat in my atelier, lulled by Khmer crooner Sinn Sisamouth in the background, I grabbed an ink pad as I spotted a lotus flower. I broke off the petals and inked the stalk. What a wonderful impression it made! A circle with seven holes. I inked it once again, and stamped the paper again. One mark after another the impressions filled my first square.
