Mini Portraits Series

I love making portraits, there is something fascinating about creating faces. Every now and then I crave doing figurative work, more likely after I have painted a lot of abstract art. This small studies are 5x7 on Yupo paper and they were a lot of fun to make.

I also painted 3 mini portraits on canvas with the same color scheme. They were a challenge, the main goal was to create different faces but similar…

After taking photos of the mini faces to document my work, I realized they look like people from all over the world. I didn’t do this on purpose, but now I’m glad they turned on like that, because I’m thinking of creating a mini book or a zine around people from around the world.

My art work is inspired by my life experiences, and traveling has been very important in my life. I got to meet so many people from different countries in my travels and each of them have made a mark in me.

Let’s see where this project takes me.

Expressive Art Workshops

I will be offering new Expressive art Workshops with Hispanic Family Counseling.  3 workshops will be provided: Orlando - June 1st and Altamonte - June 8th and I can't wait for you to attend. 

About my Workshops:

The process of intuitive painting and creating art is a beautiful playground in which to learn a ton of life’s lessons around healing, courage, imperfections, change, and so much more.  Trust your voice while we begin to bring our paintings together by following (and trusting) our creative urges. 
Expressive arts bridge the gap between the conscious and the unconscious mind. It can bring light to areas of therapy that are blocked, inhibited, and stuck, as well as bringing greater focus to those areas of concern. The primary focus is on the process, which allows a person to discover new insight and meaning that might not be achieved with traditional talk therapy.

Appropriate for all ages, it can enhance a person’s emotional, spiritual, cognitive, and physical well-being. While no previous experience expressive arts is required, several modalities available within expressive arts therapy magnify and deepen the process.

The Workshop...
• All are welcome. My workshops can be tailored to all ages and ability. 
• Absolutely no artistic experience is necessary to participate in my workshops. In fact, if you;re reading this and thinking, I am not creative enough to do this, then these workshops are perfect for you! Each of us has a creative, prolific artist within us and these workshops will help you to
dream big and set that amazing part of you free. 
• My workshops are a safe place where your art and creativity are sacred. I am not a therapist. I never analyze your artwork. The beauty of expressive arts is that you have the freedom to go as deep as you wish and share as much or as little as you are comfortable with. The artwork you create is for you and only you. 
• No pressure! It is about the process of art-making, rather than the results.

Hope you can make it!!!!
