If the emotions can speak with us, how they will look like?

I paint emotional "monsters". What the people feel, dream, fear. That is why creation is a joyful process for me. I depart for an intellectual question, usually a twist of the context of a meaning for a personal journey through the eyes of the others. I use linguistic for redefine the semiotic boundaries of my art as signifier and creates an emotional collective epiphany, a party.

I also love paint portraits that works as mirror of hideous dreams and despair of people. It is why the people become monsters, including me. 'Monster" comes from the Latin mostrare (to show), and monere (to warn). Everything that makes you astonish can be a monster. The psychologist Paul Diel said that monster is the symbol of excessive emotions, that I linked in my work with desires.
I like brilliant, bold colors for emotional brush strokes direct from my ovaries. I want to see how far can I get using properties of the materials for to build very layered mixed media paintings as metaphor of a feeling. The painting substituted the words in my narration.
