She paints because she is a rogue. She wants to get away from it all. Painting is her escape from reality. She thinks in abstract terms. Her process is to look at others artists and appliestheir techniques to her own vision. She gets inspired and then she paints. She cannot be pressured to paint and perform. She worksfrom inspiration. She isconstantly learning and applying new techniques. She is an innovator. She likes different media, different materials. She wantsto create something different that has not been created by anyone else. That is the reason she loves to paint. She is unique and original. She just wantsto be different than the rest. She just livesto paint.
Rossana uses traditional glazing techniques and multiple layers to achieve abstractions. Rossana's paintings have been in many internet galleries and shows.
