In her artwork light is an essential component:
“Shadows are born from the expressive gesture. Light impact matter, which creates a dark and contrasted center that potentiates the clarity around her.
Light sculps the shape of wind, waves, rocks and my brush.”
Searching balance between heavy and lightweight, full and empty, light and shadow, peaceful and dynamic.
