LETICIA SCHMIDT

Leticia began her professional training in Graphic Design at the Autonomous University of Guadalajara and participated in various Fine Art workshops. A professor encouraged Leticia to pursue her dreams to become a professional abstract artist. Leticia describes her abstract paintings as “harmonic compositions that communicate feelings of well-being within ones self and their surroundings.” She goes on to describe her work as a paradox.  At first glance her paintings seem to be chaotic: color, shape and texture placed arbitrarily, but in fact these elements are placed on the canvas carefully and with discretion so the end result is harmonious. Leticia’s acrylic series is inspired by her travels to ancient cities in the Mediterranean and Africa. Her newest works, created with encaustic wax take her love of texture and her color palette to a new level.
