Biography

HRESULA BENTSEN

A lifetime of art immersion has led to the age old technique of mosaics. My Greek linage provided a few visits to Greece and the mosaic icons and floor patterns seemed to strike a chord with me. I had wanted to learn the technique and took a class in 2009. I was hooked and started my mosaic journey. Most of my adult life has been spent in the creative process being an interior designer. I have worked with people designing their home interiors from start to finish and many commercial properties as well. Color placement and scale were of great importance and have become a foundation for my mosaic work. My art is influenced by travel and absorption of different cultures and visual stimulation of nature in all its beauty. I am based full time in Baja California Sur and my work is evolving as all art does in time. There is a long history of tile and color works in my adopted country Mexico.
