Meet Sabina

I am always looking for new ways of expressions and I found plastic and visual arts since I was a little girl. I like book illustration, painting, and ceramic. I studied drawing and painting at the University of Puerto Rico with well known book illustrator Walter Torres but I consider myself a self-taugtht.

Here is my mixed media art illustration Sabina. Art is part of my daily life and I have integrated it into my jewelry. Sabina belongs to the Naive Art style that is characterized by a child like simplicity. This style is very fresh and employs bright colors and a strong-rhythmic design.

Mixed media is a technique involving the use of two or more artistic media such as ink, water color, acrylic paint, paper, fabric, and other related media. In the case of Sabina I'm using acrylic paint, archival ink, and an antique music sheet. I made the wings with part of a 1904 musical score!

Please, stay tuned because Sabina is going to be in one of my art pendants pretty soon. Art prints of Sabina are going to be in my Etsy shop too. My shop update is going to be next June.

Have a nice day!
