Glenda Castillo Member Since July 2009 Artist Statement I was originally an attorney before I moved to Florida with my husband and my two children. From that point on, I dedicated my time entirely to raising my children and supporting my family.
Once both of my children went to school, I returned to school myself and obtained an Associate’s Degree in Graphic Design. Visual art was something that I had always been interested in, and this is when I began painting – murals, landscapes and cards. Then, I created Enchant Art.
I traveled to Europe to learn more about the great masters of art and to experience their masterpieces for inspiration. As I was exploring Rome, Venice, London and many areas of Spain, I had the opportunity to visit museums, churches and monuments that became part of my inspiration.
Besides great works of art, another source that inspires me is nature with the magic of color and shape involved in every flower, bird, and wonderous insect.
I eventually found that painting and photography was not only a talent for me, but something that I greatly enjoyed doing, something that engrossed me and provided an immense feeling of satisifaction. To me, the real meaning of making art is to express myself, my heart, my emotions, my energy on a piece of paper or canvas. I think you’ll see both my ability to paint and my enjoyment of it in my art.
I hope my positive message of life reaches you and all who are blessed with your expressions of love.
