As a Floridian born and raised on the coast, the ocean will always be my home and a constant influence on my art, most specifically the Stingray series. This surreal stingray is Jenya'lu and she's is set on a mixed-media abstract background of glued paper to add texture and ripples for the matte and metallic paint, painted ontop, to play the lighting from. This creates lines of light in various places through the painting at different angles, like you'd expect from the ocean. Jenya'lu herself is also a bit mixed media herself for she was sketched on paper, cut out, and glued to the canvas to add a little more kick to the 3-D nature of her swimming out of the canvas. Likewise, I mixed my own metallic orange, pink and purple accrylic paints to had highlights to Jenya'lu for the full effect of vibrance from every angle.
"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you," the coo before the command, "Lead by example." Remmy didn't always believe in such things, couldn't until she first accepted the truth and intelligence they bestowed. Even so, it took years to turn the knowledge into practical and personal application. In 2017 Remmy started shifting her creative interest toward the Stream of Consciousness and sharing of information, thoughts, and concepts. From cabinet maker to customer service rep, toll collector to call center quality specialist and trainer, home remodeler to paint night art instructor, and a variety of odd jobs in between. Broken bones to 3rd degree burns, self-loathing to helping others, hating the world to leading with love, caring only for herself to caring for her ailing Grandparents... Remmy has a lot of life insights to share; and the care/passion to make every RA artwork worth owning.
