Jessica Mariana: A New York City Native, based in Miami, Florida and an abstract enthusiast. While attending Miami International University of Art & Design, I create while the mind wanders in and out of consciousness. Apart of the ritual I perform when painting a composition on various surfaces. I explore the subconscious by allowing my heart and brain guide my hand and choose whichever media should be placed on the composition. Releasing energy onto the canvas and projecting emotion through light, shade and stroke, the result of each work is a mere rest stop while living the reality given at birth.
