"Painting has allowed me to look and study the world around me in much more depth. I see colour, shapes, light in so many new ways. When I paint I enter another world which is free of anxiety. Besides a sense of achievement and self-worth it gives me the freedom to express my deepest feelings" - Sarbjit Johal
