Silvina Lanusse is a mixed media creative originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina now living in
Parksville. Her work is inspired by nature around her. Her painting begins the moment the first
drop of colour falls on her substrate. It starts with a swirl, then another. Layers of pure colour
dance in rhythm with textures. Her painting varies from colourful abstracts to whimsical
stories. Organic strokes held together in a symphony of radiant paint bursting like her life tango.
