Glory S. Spinuzzi Fine Art
I was born on the Island of Sri Lanka in 1989. Being raised on an Island I have always had a fascination with the Sea. It has been one of the biggest inspirations behind my artistic journey. I have always had a creative spirit. I began drawing and sketching at an early age, but my urge to express myself wasn’t satisfied until I tried painting. I began painting in 2012 as a hobby. As I painted more and more I found that there was a natural talent inside me that was waiting to blossom and I realized that it was a gift that God had given. It has been a truly magical journey as my painting has evolved and I am still spell bound as I watch an image unfold before my eyes.
I am profoundly drawn to the organic nature of oil paint. I have found it both suits my personality and best represents the feeling and movement of the sea. The way it blends, glows, moves and exists. I make the brushwork quick and spontaneous with shapes made up of lines, dabs and dots. Only at a distance does what seems like a confusion of wildly applied paint turn into a recognizable composition. I use a glazing technique that allows me to achieve the fascinating effect of depth and translucence in my work of contemporary Realism.
I love being part of this journey. This process that unites me and the people that have also been blessed with the ability to perceive and appreciate the beauty in life.
Although I am a self taught artist, I have been mentored by Edward Park, an Internationally recognized artist. Today I live in Naples Florida and display my work at art shows and festivals in South West Florida.
