My name is Umbreen and I consider art to be my safe place. My art is a tangible rendition of what I feel, as life happens.
Abstract art knows no bounds and I am constantly intrigued by the unassuming emotional journey that different blends of colors and brush strokes bring about and the feelings they provoke.
A feeling that is utterly unique to each individual.
As a teenager I was always very quiet, but being quiet doesn't mean that I didn't have strong opinions or values. Art helps me express myself in a way that is big and bold. It gives me a voice without using my words.
As an artist I find inspiration in nature, my travels and the power of gratitude. The constant reminder that we are a small speck of creation in a vast, beautiful world that comes in many colors is simultaneously humbling and inspiring.
I begin every art adventure by writing down seven things I am grateful for. Over time a pattern does develop of the things and beings that bring out the best in me. I lean on the vibrancy of colors, softness of blending and dimensionality of layering and visible strokes to express and invoke emotions.
I rely on oils pastels, acrylics and inks and hope that these unassuming strokes provoke you, calm you or intrigue you. In many ways it is a form of mediation that enables me to cherish moments and memories that are several shades of life, yet through art infinitely peaceful.
I never plan anything before I embark on an abstract journey. The path reveals itself as I keep on painting on. I use texture and blends of colors to paint what I feel and allow the infinity of emotions and abstract expression to find that which centers me. Art gives me purpose.
I am excited to share my work or custom create art for you.
