I believe Art, in any form, is not only self-healing, but also provides a safe place to communicate and break down stigmas, taboos, and walls. There is beauty in flaws, self-reflection in creative expression, and connections through honest dialogue. From my garage studio, I turn my journal entries into freehand drawn, figurative portraits using pencil (sometimes incorporating mixed media) on handpicked, cut and framed wood panels. The inspiration for my art is simple #theartoflife. MDFerrera Fine Art is a combination of education, practice, experience and experimentation; which allows my perspective as a female artist to remain traditional yet contemporary. Art is how I balance life, love, motherhood and the artists’ brain while offering hope through vulnerability.
