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.

It lets me enjoy and cherish moments that are colorful, soulful and infinitely peaceful.

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.

My art is colorful, sometimes gray, sometimes fluid and others times deep with texture and bright with colors, kind of like life.

I aim for illustrations that are deep with texture, fluid with color and unassuming strokes that may provoke you, calm you or intrigue you.

I find inspiration in my past and in my present. I look to my children and the purity of their laughter. I look to my community, their diversity, their individuality, strength and generosity. I see them and it inspires me to help to make a half, whole.  I am inspired through different cultures and the nature of things, beings and the extraordinary talent that surrounds, humbles and inspires me.

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 my silver lining.

 I am excited to share my work or custom create art for you.
