About the art:
It is an invitation to find an inner refuge to pause, recharge and raise our vibrations.
Painting abstract forms of nature is my personal way of expressing my feelings, emotions and how I experience the world. Before I begin to paint, I meditate for few minutes which connect me to that little voice within. Intuitively, my brush moves and syncs with the energy around me. And I become a messenger translating emotions and feelings into the paintings. Acrylic allows me to paint with ease and to play with the intensity of colors to emphasize the power of Nature. One color gives life to the next by creating contrast and movement.
I have always been inspired by the Impressionists, Monet is my favorite, I use a bright palette to intensify a serene setting showing the enormous impact that the colors of Nature has on our life. My art recreates the instinctive bond between us and nature as a healing catalyst by capturing the beauty, sense of balance and harmony in flowers, trees, sunsets, oceans, mountains. The paintings translate the chi, the life force energy, which rejuvenates, invigorates and bring us to a place of contentment...
