This is part of an ongoing series of abstract ink paintings exploring color, light, and shapes. I created this piece in several layers. Although these paintings are flat in texture, they still have a lot of depth visually and have a 3D effect in person. The Yupo paper that I used for this piece is a unique synthetic paper, machine-made in the USA of 100% polypropylene. It is waterproof, stain resistant, and extremely strong and durable. It resists tearing and buckling and lays flat. Because of the non-absorbant nature of the paper, no white paint was used. Please note that all computer monitors are different. The colors in this painting may differ ever so slightly from what you see on your screen. It will come shipped in an archival clear plastic bag, placed between two pieces of sturdy cardboard in a stay flat mailer.
I am a Houston, TX based artist and I also paint murals part-time. I received my Bachelors degrees in both Painting and Photography in May 2010, and I completed my Masters in Painting at the San Francisco Art Institute in May 2012. Creating is a necessity for me, and I don't know who I would be without it. I crave that artistic release. I love connecting with people through my art, because each piece I create is a little part of me. I am an expressive oil painter, and my artistic focus is usually on the female figure. For me, the body can express so many different moods/emotions, and I love seeing what I can draw out from it through the paint. I also enjoy painting more abstract subject matter and things inspired by nature.
