Shakaya Leone is an abstract impressionistic painter. She paints serene images of florals, abstracts and landscapes with a focus on capturing the fleeting, ethereal nature of beauty and light. Painting is a mediation of grace and play. Moulding paste and glass beads are used to create texture, dimension, and contrast to the softness of the petals and their colours. A reminder that although there is often contrast in life ie pain and disappointment, there is also great beauty and joy– so what will we focus on? Shakaya paints to give people something beautiful to focus upon. Shakaya can be found at EarthEmpress.com.
