The term velatura reflects my painting process, which consists of the fabrication, subtle layers upon layers of color, of dreamlike, and sometimes playful, realities.
My paintings are trees and nature scenes created as a response to those places that deeply resonate with me.
Although several paintings are copies from life; I adore creating art based from the real world yet vividly transformed by my infatuation for soothing colors like purples, greens, and blues.
I truly enjoy creating paintings that reflect my admiration for nature's creative force. With each brushstroke, I feel a connection with its whimsical energy.
~ This April is going to be a special month. ~
