INEZ — Artist of the Year

Artist Statement:

My paintings are an anolgy of what exists. The truth for me is how nature shows itself in various forms, colours and proportions. Nature is a role model for my paintings. I am constantly searching for what exists. I am driven by motivation with no plan of outcome. I am amazed to find how chance works best. My hopes to accomplish is: a partial hint of another way of seeing and sharing the same experience with others.
