healing and connecting through art
MY ART & STORY
I believe Art and the process of creating, in any form, provides a safe place for honest internal and external dialogue, that helps break down stigmas surrounding mental health, breaking through judgment and doubt. Through Art we find beauty in flaws, self-reflection in creative expression, and deep connections through communication. 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 and practice, experience and experimentation, risk and vulnerability; which allows my perspective as a female artist to continuously grow and evolve. Creating is how I balance life, love, motherhood and the artists' brain. Whether I'm exhibiting my fine art, leading workshops or participating in local projects, my hope is to inspire and share the tools that have helped me as an Artist and human.
“...constantly adjusting to each individual grain, the cathartic process of freehand drawing intimate poses on durable wood, gives me the strength needed to let go..."
