this is me
Maria Tolstoy Sinclair
“In certain cultures one has to be able to dance before one can paint. This appeals to me. I paint with my entire heart, my entire body and my entire soul. Art, a Passion, has been a red thread throughout life.
One can often see movement. My paintings are abstract and searching. I try to find that which is intuitive, that which is genuine, my aesthetic feeling, there always exists beauty, hope. You can find an exciting whirl of lines in which to search or a restful simple expanse.
I strive to surprise myself. Each painting is an experiment in colour and material. Each picture has its own soul. A little piece of a soul, a little piece of the beauty and pain of existence.”
