Farmed

My art is greatly inspired by my upbringing in South America. I was raised with a deep connection to nature, especially the animals. Adapting to a lifestyle in the US where factory farmed animals are the norm proved to be difficult for me. It often robs people and animals of that cherished connectedness. Soon I realized that I wanted to paint these uncherished animals and give them a face and a voice that they deserve. I paint the bees that freely pollinated the flowers of their choice. I paint the cows that roamed our sidewalks, blocking our car in the garage and making me late to school. I paint the moody pigs that napped under our neighbor’s mango trees. I paint the chickens that slept at night, snuggled in the trees. I paint them, and I paint FOR them. Each animal that I create is vibrant, colorful, textured, and intricately layered. Countless hours are dedicated to crafting each piece of art. Enjoy! Come say hello on Instagram & Facebook @ CopperCorners!
