Inspired by Nature
Ingrid’s favorite themes include flowers, moons and the sea. Although she rarely paints when she travels, the particularities of the different places she has lived have had a strong influence on her paintings.
‘I feel that my colors are from my memories back in Mexico, but I experienced the change of seasons for the first time as an adult when I moved to Europe and the botanical gardens in NY took my breath away… after that all I wanted to do was to paint in bold colors and share with everyone how I was feeling the world.’
