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.
