Felsa Marie Hortiza-Barut, a self-taught contemporary artist. Born in Tagum City, Philippines.
She started painting since 2013. She has a strong desire to be creative and make use of her
imagination allowing her intuitive senses full capability to create with freedom and express
feelings and emotions of her inner psyche. She focused on creating abstract paintings and woman portraits in which she captured and interpreted her own distinctive visual identity. She paints mainly in acrylics, but also works with gold leaf on canvas. Learning most of her painting techniques through her love of art and experimentation she finds the most of her inspiration through raw emotions and life's experiences , feeling the energy conveyed in each piece. An important facet of Felsa’s artwork is her strong belief that her ideas and creativity are gifts from God. “Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms. (1 Peter 4:10 NIV).
