We cannot see ourself. The only way that we can see ourself is in the mirror. And that mirror includes the way that we express ourself.

My voice has been getting increasingly specific. And my message has been getting clearer. It focuses on rock, and on “you rock.” To me, rock is a reflection of strength and strength matters, especially inner strength — going beyond the mind and its chatter, its doubts and fears. And that comes from knowing that you are, not defined by what you do, but just that you are, and that that is good enough.

So I try to Be in my work. Not to be this or to be that, but to explore, discover and express. Perhaps that is why the abstract plays such a strong role for me. It is both defined and not defined. It just is. And part of that statement is the bold, positive, beautiful natural energy of rock, of the extraordinary colours and patterns that are in each and every one of us.” Cheryl Hassen
