“I find the image of a veiled woman very intriguing. The fact that a woman can reveal only a small part of her facial characteristics and yet show so much from that which you can see and even that which is left to the imagination under the cover of the veil. Now in a world where just the appearance of a veiled woman (in the minds of the media manipulated majority) invokes fear, I want people to see the intriguing beauty and cultural respect that the veiled woman in the painting represents.” – Yvonne Muinde
