Artist’s Statement

To Wilma Touru the painting process is holistic, involving all aspects of her being. The intensity of the artist's paintings and her presence in the works is both sensed and recognised. Painting is a natural choice for Wilma Touru, through which she speaks to people, based on her own life's experiences. A spontaneous, intuitive approach is essential to her as an artist.
