“Through my paintings I give people a chance to escape to a different reality. A happy place. I create idyllic small towns surrounded by hills and meadows where you can walk the narrow and dwindling streets and meet friends every day. The Pandemic made a strong impact in all of us exacerbating feelings of isolation and fear. I bring hope in my paintings by showing expressions of human contact: people embracing, kissing and holding hands are common elements.”
Violeta is a jewelry designer working primarily in sterling silver and fresh water pearls in a contemporary style.
