The Grandiose mountain.jpg

Painting is my tool for healing.

When I stand in front of a canvas or paper, with a brush in hand and a prism of colour at my fingertips, I am swept into other Dimension where only beauty and harmony exist. It is here, in the world of Gaia, but in a different spectrum that I am in peace with all the splendour of nature. Its chaos manifested without malice, allowing me to observe its purity and sublimity. 

In the midst of storms, thunderclouds, geysers and tidal waves, I am made to feel small, yet honoured to be the onlooker of a cosmic beauty that surpasses human importance. 

I hope that whoever holds my paintings on their wall receives the same feeling of appreciation for, and connection with, the natural world.

With Love,

Nella Alão
