About Patricia Awapara

Artist Statement:

My creative process is rather unplanned; I let my heart lead the way. The freedom of painting without limitations lets me be creative and for my passion to reflect on my work.

I start each painting with a vague idea about form and color scheme, which let’s me be spontaneous. This basic principle combined with self-expression results in a sudden unpremeditated fearless approach to color and texture. This strategic intuition guides me from beginning to end, acquired only after many years of experimenting. It still amazes me how stimulating that is. I get exited when creating expressive paintings that are interesting to observe from far and up close. I want them to be invigorating, inviting and for my enthusiasm to permeate across my work. My intention is for people to find themselves with the desire to touch them.

I believe the art links us with its emotional and visual energy.

Bio:

Born in Lima, Peru, Patricia's artistic journey started at a very young age. She participated in murals and art projects in her school until her family moved to the US with hopes of a better future. Being an immigrant had it challenges, but it served her well. As she said, 'I stopped taking things for granted and learned to appreciate life.'

The change brought new responsibilities. For years Patricia worked instead of going to school to help out with the household expenses. However, the time came for her to attend college. Although she graduated with a degree in Graphic Design, her heart longed to explore painting. She took a couple of painting classes while attending college and a few more at Florida International University, where she participated in competitions and won several awards.

Patricia worked at a local business for more than 10 years. However, she used her spare time to paint and learn new techniques. It was her love for painting that motivated her to become a full-time Artist. She quit her regular job on 2013.

Since her first art class on 2004, she continues experimenting with oils and acrylics. Now, as a professional full time artist, Patricia is constantly creating new collections.

**************************************************

I sell paintings locally and online. I've worked with interior designers in customs requests. Some of my pieces have travel as far as Australia and found new homes in Ireland, England and Germany among many other cities. The internet has shorten distances and given us all a way to connect. The same goes for art. I believe it creates a special bond between the artist and the buyer, both linked by the emotional and visual energy of the artwork.

Whether it has been a listed item or custom order I accept nothing less than complete satisfaction and a big smile. It is important to me that when you open the package it takes your breath away.

I would love to hear from you. Please contact me for more details.

**************************************
Materials:

I use high quality paints and cotton canvas, boards and panels to create each piece.
Some of the brand names are Golden, Rembrandt and Williamsburg. And of course, lots of Love!

Medium and Large painting will come with a certificate of authenticity.

Thank you again for stopping by and your support!

My other passion is science. It's fascinating that everything that exists, all here on earth to the farthest point in the universe, are made of the same stuff. And what hold us together is an invisible energy, which is always moving. As one, I share my joy of painting with all.
