When it comes to art, my philosophy consists of two rules:

1. Let the brush take the lead.
2. Use "mistake" marks to add depth to the piece. Always play from errors.

When I truly get lost in the art I don't even know what I am painting anymore, there are no sketch guidelines on the surface of the canvas, and my mind slowly lulls as my hands take the lead, sweeping the brush through the surface, and mixing paint as the ideas materialize throughout the process. At the end, I am just as surprised as anyone to see what the piece has come to be.

My inspiration is my grandmother. An incredible woman who I was only allowed to know for a very short period of time. I know that she lived life fully and painted with all her heart.

I paint around nature, the human figure, spirituality and contrast. With each piece I learn more about life and find out a bit more about who I am.

This particular piece is called "Ramas" which translates to "Branches" in english. I was inspired to paint this piece because I have always loved the shadow/silhouette look trees and tree branches have just as the sun dips under the horizon and the night washes over the earth. It is such a beautiful and equally ephemeral time of the day when the sun rays are shining their last rays on the day just before the moon takes the sky's spotlight. This painting is the result of my interpretation of those branch silhouettes that decorate the earth at dusk.

My name is Laiana Isabel. I am a college art major in the city of Mayaguez, Puerto Rico and a self proclaimed artist with a passion for artistic expression. I have been drawn to an artistic career since a very early age. Before me, my grandmother was an artist in Puerto Rico and though she left us too quickly to teach me her profession her spirit has lingered in me. I have become a self taught artist, always experimenting and practicing my craft on my own during my free time off of school and work. I am mostly inspired to paint around spirituality, color, contrast nature and the human figure.
