Hello my name is Rosemary Estrella and I am from Brooklyn, NY. I studied architecture in Brooklyn NY and I currently work as Project Architect for an architecture firm in New York City. I have always loved to draw and be creative so decided to explore my passion for making artwork.
I find inspiration in everyday items that I may see while walking down a street or riding the subway. For example, a tree, a pretty flower, or an interesting object like a chain link fence with vines growing on it; these have all been the source of my inspiration. As soon as I see something that inspires me I will take a picture and look for an interesting shape within that object that captures its essence.
I start laying down lines on my sketchbook and as I start drawing my lines the image starts to take its own shape; then I will fill in the shapes. Once I feel the image is complete on paper I scan my image and I will start to experiment with colors and textures.
I really enjoy making pieces this way because it is portable and whenever I am feeling inspired I can freely put all my ideas down on paper. All I need is my sketchbook. My work is a way to express all the thoughts and emotions going around in my head.
Although I did not formally study fine art I have always enjoyed drawing, painting, and being creative. I have researched techniques and taken recreational art classes, finally I decided to turn my passion into a reality by applying to exhibit my work.
