"The inspiration for my work arises from a strong desire to connect with a deeper part of myself. Line, repetition and layering are fundamental in the work – every one of my pieces begins with a layer of repetitive drawing. My choice and combination of colors is spontaneous, at times marrying colors that are not complementary but somehow work together." - Luisa Mesa
