I created this piece while creating my "Sacred Love" series of 12 artworks that are a celebration of the magic and power of romantic love. This is a smaller version of that. The figures are stylized to look almost as a fairy tale book illustration. There is a love story here: of an Englishwoman in her rose garden encountering her lover...and we can let our imaginations take flight as to what happens to them! In every couple's stories, there is at least one moment of that fairy tale like magic; which is why we keep pursuing romantic relationships, no matter how often they break our hearts!
The image itself is 12X12, but it is framed with white matting and a black frame with gold lines.
Born in the USA, but I grew up in Chile. That land of wine, poetry, and magic inspired in me early on to create my own visual language. I call it “visual poetry”: people, landscapes and objects selected and stylized to capture an emotion. Back in the USA, in Nebraska, the solitude of endless skies and prairie drew me within to my own realms of imagination. Even though I have a Minor in Art as part of my Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Nebraska in Lincoln, much of my work is self-explored. I got my MA in London, where I was inspired by the great masterpieces, in particular, that of Impressionistic and Post-Impressionistic artists from whom I've "borrowed" some of my techniques. Here in Los Angeles, California, where I currently reside, I continue my search to give visual expression to the inner experience of our outer world. I'm inspired by the beautiful diversity of people, the variety of environments and the vibrancy of the art scene that currently surrounds me .
