Self-taught, Simone Schaustz grew-up watching her father painting as a hobby.
Canvas, brushes, oil paint sets, and frames were spread at the family's home being part of the affectionate surroundings. She started to paint as a creative output while working in advertising in São Paulo, Brazil.
What inspires her mostly is the possibility to transform the canvas white surface into a colorful and impactful piece.
Simone follows her intuition and thoughts from the present moment to create organic shapes with juxtaposing small ink dots over acrylic paint on canvas. After a slow and meticulous process, the art is finished when she feels satisfied with the balance between shapes, layers and the color palette.
