Consu tolosa

I am a Portland-based painter in illustrator originally from Montevideo, Uruguay. My artwork emerges at the junction of play and joy, providing me endless hours of delight in my studio. My painting process starts as spontaneous and unstructured at first. I begin without a plan, simply responding to color and form. At some point, a tiny window of clarity appears and offers me a focus, and the access to the magical world that will later become the finished painting.

 

I am inspired by everyday events and situations, and by the process of painting itself.
