Ready to Hang

A celebration of the collective imagination that has populated the mystery of our oceans with these magical creatures & a return to the childlike wonder that makes us dream of mermaids.

I grew up by the ocean and have always been fascinated and in love with it. I love walking, and meditating by the sea. I love swimming and scuba diving in the sea. I dream up what mysteries I will find in its depths and long to be a mermaid so that I never have to come up for air.

The painting includes silver enamel which makes the scales, the waves and their hair shimmer like light on water.

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 .
