Growing up in South America, with very few resources made me look at things differently... So using my mind and having a passion for creating. I started looking for alternative ways to paint, and decorate. Challenging myself to be persistent, and find different ways to express myself through painting everyday. It wasn't until i was in my twenties that I was able to paint on my first actual canvas. In my heart this simple act made me feel that I was a "real" artist.
Now that I had "arrived" I felt it was time to go back to my roots of finding affordable materials to make beautiful unique art on. I knew that there were artists that had painted on screens before, and I knew screen was a great affordable material. So as a test, I decided to make my husbands grandma who loves her outdoor space a piece.
Not knowing how to create on screens I soon became very frustrated, and gave up trying to do what other people were doing with the screens. After some great encouragement from friends. I continued my journey to master this material. I continued to get better and better at my craft. Now after thousands of paintings on screen, I present to you my shop. In this shop you won't just find art on screens, you'll find amazing pieces on burlap, and wood as well. I am always looking to find new interesting ways to express myself. You never know what I'll paint on next.
It could have been a lot different. I could have looked at the fact that my parents didn't have the money to help me grow as an artist, or the fact that I didn't have money to buy a simple canvas. Instead I chose to look within, I chose to believe in myself, to have faith, that I was going to make it. I chose to believe that I didn't have to be like everyone else. You have to be you!!!! Anything you believe in, water it, feed it, and protect it, and you can change the world. Take a step forward and try something different, it might just change your life.
