Confluence of Willows

Willow basketry runs deep in my ancestry and can be traced back to my great grandfather who wove baskets out of necessity in the Dakota Territories in the late 1800’s. I learned from my father as a child and have been weaving for over 40 years. I am capable of many different weaving styles as well as living structures.

I grew up in Colorado. My years were shaped by the proud mountains, ever blue skies, and glorious sunsets. I have always felt a connection to the wilderness around me. Thus, Whimsy was born. Named after the feeling I get when surrounded by trees and the dancing wildflowers!

Mildred Orama

Mildred Orama

Mildred Orama, Painter

Im originally from beautiful, Puerto Rico, which explains why color, and sun make me so content. My art work is inspired by the beauty of women. I’m drawn to the combination of colors and textures. I love how I can change the designs, expressions, feelings. And how I can reflect on them my own experiences, my own journey. I can express on them love, peace, sadness, hope or pain. I paint with acrylic on canvas, mostly I like to use a palette knife. I live here in Goshen, Indiana not by choice but by the way life sometimes directs your step. I believe is a reason for everything and some how some way, God will let me know on His time. My art is been show in Grand Rapids, Michigan and here in Goshen.
