Creative Focus, Wenesday, October 2  -  Latin-Inspired Painting

"I am originally from Bogotá – Colombia. I started drawing when I was 10 years old-mostly Manga (Japanese style), but I always added my own personal twist. I love to experiment with different materials and forms; so far, my favorite has been acrylics on canvas. There is nothing better than to have an idea in your mind and then to be able to see it with your own eyes. I love to travel and experience different cultures so my memories and experiences mix with creativity into my paintings. You will always find a mixture of Latin culture in it since I really enjoy adding several colors to my art work."

Creative Focus, Wenesday, October 2  -  Chalk Art

"I am an independent artist from New York City living here in St. Louis; going on 13 years and loving it. I wear many hats-I am an Interior Designer, muralist, performance artist, carpenter, theatrical set designer, antique dealer, painter, chalk artist, crafter, and makeup artist. I have worked for many amazing clients and my job just keeps getting better every year. My claim to fame is a painting on the ceiling of the entry foyer of The National Arts Club in Gramercy Park in New York City. I am a creator of visions and when I run out of canvas I am the medium!"

As a trained art therapist, Muriel spent many years working in prisons, community centers, hospitals, and in private practice, and also taught at the college level. In recent years she has renewed her commitment to her own watercolor painting; as she works in her studio each day, she feels gratitude and joy for the chance to explore more deeply the beauty and mystery of the world around her, and the world within. In her watercolors Muriel wants to capture the essence of the human spirit. From rugged cowboys, to indigenous peoples, to mothers and their children, Muriel seeks out the poignant beauty of faces, glances, moods. She has a special love of color, and is fascinated by the tension between colors. Characterized by an intensity of pigment unusual in watercolor, Muriel's work shimmers with vibrancy and vitality.
