All Paintings © 2000 Fabiana Kofman1997
Some years ago, I began to paint without any previous knowledge of art or formal studies. It was a great challenge for me considering that I discovered my vocation after reaching adulthood and becoming a wife and mother. I have a beautiful family, but no time to attend art classes. I consider myself an autodidactic. An autodidactic is a person who develops her own art without any kind of academic preparation. In my opinion, this doesn´t imply primitivism or immaturity, because an artist who has not received the lessons of masters and partners must discover everything for herself. Therefore, she must be able to find the answers (many times hidden). If she really wants to progress, she must work her head off, making use of a solid discipline. When I paint, I try to capture my inspiration and my feelings -- the poetry of my soul lives in each image of my art.
