While at the monthly FAVO art market, artist Denisse Berlingeri was nice enough to compliment the sketches that Imdo day to day. I ultimately decided to sketch in her studio since she appreciates my work. Her work is bold and colorful with plenty of primary colors. I caught a patron in a very fancy hat as she admired the work.
Denisse was born and raised in Orocovis, Puerto Rico and is an award winning fashion designer and artist. Known locally for her ceramic sculptures, paintings and mosaic art. Her work has been exhibited throughout the USA and Puerto Rico. Her artwork is very much a reflection of her personality, coming from a small town and a large family, inspired by nature and her roots. Her technique has evolved as a result of experimentation and her extraordinary talent and sensitivity of design. She has focused her work on the combination of bright colors with rich texture surfaces, incorporating glass mosaic and other materials into it, creating a unique effect that has gave her unlimited possibilities for exploring, the result has been an intriguing expression of her love and passion for what she does.
