Artist Statement

"I love to transmit emotion through my brush strokes. My art is inspired by the connection of the Divine and the earthly realms where I show through my work that it’s possible to transform our reality and bring into fruition a vision inside our imagination. I paint portraits of women for their beauty and strength and wild animals for representing true nature and the fierceness within that drives me to follow my dreams. With my art I hope to inspire people, to allow them to question their thoughts, to feel, to believe in themselves and their gifts, and to remind them of their inner power."

- Astrid C. Mendieta
