The tradition and experience of art as a form of living energy reaches back to the birth of rock-art and hieroglyphics - humanity’s most ancient signature of communion and response to the mystery of Creation.
Guided by the imprint of spirit and realms of inner story my paintings take form.
Each painting takes a period of weeks to months to complete, with every line, dot or mark built with many repeated strokes of white paint upon the yellow-ochre background.
Zenta's way of painting is indeed one of the powerful spirit-given gifts she is using.
It is an ancient and powerful language rich in meaning that our modern world has forgotten.
Thank you, mama, for sharing this great medicine.

Zenta’s artwork seems like it belongs to any and all ancient cultures. It is outside names and places.
