I am an abstract artist AND DESIGNER on a mission to share my PASSION with the world! I’d like to say that I was born with many talents, but ART was more than just a mere talent. To me, it is a gift! SINCE A VERY YOUNG AGE, I WAS NATURALLY GIFTED AT DRAWING AND MY FAVORITE THINGS TO DRAW WERE FASHION INSPIRED PICTURES. IT WASN’T UNTIL my sophomore year AT THE PRESTIGIOUS DUKE ELLINGTON SCHOOL OF THE ARTS, THAT I discovered my TRUE passion “Abstract Painting”. WHAT I LOVE MOST IS THAT ABSTract art allowS me to express myself freely without any limitations.
WHILE ART IS MY FIRST LOVE, FASHION & STYLE IS STILL VERY DEAR TO ME. So, I DECIDED TO MERGE the two (art and fashion) together by hand painting on apparel. After painting my first pair of denim, I never looked back. It was the birth of my brand, Antonia Marie Art.
5 FUN FACTS ABOUT ME
Flowers were the first subjects that I started painting. A lot of my earlier pieces were inspired by Georgia O'keefe. The techniques I've learned while painting flowers, I still use in my recent abstract paintings. Flowers will forever be dear to my heart.
Despite my eye for vibrant colors, I have a deep obsession with monochromatic colors. The majority of my wardrobe is black, and my home decor is black and white. Interesting, right?
History was my least favorite subject in school. But in my adult years, I've become fascinated with movies about European Monarchies. I love movies based on a true story!
If there is one talent that I wish I had, it would be singing. Sometimes I wish that I had a voice of a bird!
I grew up wanting to be an Architect. One day I will turn that dream into a reality! The sky is the limit when it comes to art.
