Ekaterina Chernova, Auckland Member Since August 2013 Artist Statement I am an artist who lives in a beautiful far away country New Zealand and loves painting flowers and landscapes.
My paintings are colorful, because it makes people happy. I use my imagination and intuition when choosing palette. Every day I create a painting and hope that it will inspire someone. I learn a lot from nature by painting real places. Sometimes I just go for a walk with my light weight easel and a backpack of paints.
Painting is like an active meditation for me. Art brings harmony to my soul. During the painting process, imagination takes over a busy mind, and I let my hand to be a vessel through which creative forces flow.
I tap into different mediums and genres, but nothing beats traditional oil paint with its rich creamy texture and depth of color.
