Miami Betches is a satire based on the Miami party scene. Each of the characters in the painting are taken from real people and moments of time. I am inspired greatly by people and places in Miami. The lights in the club scene are mesmerizing, and often go with the beats of the music. The lighting effect in this painting gives the illusion of movement among its patrons. When out in the Miami Scene at an event or show I imagine the animal spirit people emit. I especially like to capture when people are out enjoying their night, feeling free, and uninhibited. This is the idea of letting all inhibitions go for one night. Make it rain $$$$$.
As a young girl I used to joke with my Mother that I would hop around town. She called me and my friend her cute bunnies. This idea stuck with me and transitioned into adulthood. I often imagine the women I see as bunnies. This piece is inspired from a runway show during Miami swim week.
As an artist I see the beauty around me, and I appreciate the visual as well as the beauty you cannot see. Georgia O'Keeffe was an artist who greatly inspired me, even as a young artist. Her painted flowers are often seen as a female representation, and she depicts the beauty and femininity of women. Sandro Botticelli was another artist that inspired my art and my view of beauty. His painting "The birth of Venus" was a direct influence on my current work. Venus had two aspects: she was an earthly goddess who aroused humans to physical love or she was a heavenly goddess who inspired intellectual love in them.
This particular work of art was influenced with the above mentioned artist works and the modern depiction of beauty. The modern depiction of what is beauty can be seen in Victorias Secret Fashion shows. This is my Version of a modern day Venus.
Always wanting to push the envelope I began a new style called my textured series. I'm a strong advocate for environmental awareness. Using the materials around me to save the planet has become apart of who I am and my art. My Iris constellations are made of varied materials I find. I recycle these materials and dip them in an Acrylic ceramic paint base. They are then dried and painted over with Acrylic and Oil paint on an array of materials to create a textured 3D visual effect. This is a portal to another universe. A place where beauty is infinite.
Each being goes through a pattern of birth to death. No matter the soul each serves its part in a beautiful pattern we call life. The pattern in the universe serves as a sign of gods existence. I am a rock, a wanderer, a humble servant of god. A star we once were and are to become in time. Timeless and free.

Lost in the universe or floating in a sea of hope. This piece is a transluscent feeling of wonderment about what is in the world and above. While making this particular piece I listened to a mix of classical compositions and new age music. This style of mine combines the undeniable persuasion of music and hands on painting.
