Barbara von Enger speaks her mind

'I have been attacked for having thoughts/ideas which certain members of the public cannot bear to hear. You see. I am a Jamaican artist with a social and anti-social imagination, which rarely behaves as it ought to. So, don't blame me for my imagination - I was born with an unruly internal editor, just like Bob Marley.' - Words by Jamaican artist/painter Barbara Matthews von Enger, who is otherwise known as Barbara von Enger.
