Born in Mexico City and an Architect & Youth/Children's Minister by profession, Osi initiated her love for Art at an early age.
Her Art work is a combination of her experiences, spirituality, love for God, life and values expressed in the bold use of different media. The vibrant colors and texture in her paintings connect her to her roots in Mexico. She aims to capture meaningful experiences of “LIFE” and the way the human soul absorbs them in the search for purpose.
When it comes to “Creativity” what is one of the things that
inspires you? Perhaps a specific song, an activity, smells that trigger great
Plein Air at Slacks Slough
One of the things that triggers my creativity is travelling,
visiting new places or re-visiting places in different seasons with different
people. Though I had already done a Plein Air at the Olds College Wetlands, I
had not experienced going on a “Plein Air” with my two little ones. The three
of us chose the “Right spot” and sat down on the grass… there is something
about experiencing totally the place where you are.
Here are 2 of the paintings that came out of visiting the
Olds College and Slacks Slough in Red Deer with them, I hope you give yourself
the opportunity to re-visit the places that may seem known to you with the
people you love, in a different season and perhaps with an empty canvas and your painting supplies so you
can enjoy them in a different way.
