“I paint for the reason that I must,” she writes in her artist assertion. “From discomfort relief to the exhilaration of looking at my intuition unfold into a planet of coloration, lifestyle is much better when I paint. Often there is just the peace that comes about when the brain and the globe fall out and the silkiness of the paint can take in excess of. Other moments it really is like a organic substantial that lasts for hours afterwards.”

“Each medium I use does a thing distinct for me. With Encaustic painting it’s giving up regulate to the flame hitting the wax and watching it melt and form layers of depth like vegetation and fish underwater to the textures of character developing up the form. With cold wax and oil paint, l can manually just drive the paint all around and bodily perform the canvas extra energetically and yet appear back to it days later on and even now work the image. Acrylic dries rapidly and hence, difficulties me to shift more quickly which leads to me to get my mindful intellect out of the way, bringing me to just this second! Just about every sort of medium has its own rhythm, and when I am carrying out it, I am below its spell, and it is divine.”
