MEET THE ARTIST
MY STORY
Hi! I'm Aliona Price, an artist from Chisinau, Moldova (Eastern Europe). In 2012, I left Europe and moved to Texas, USA. My painting journey has started since my childhood; I was 7-years-old when my mother signed me up for my first painting classes. At age of 14, I graduated from a local school of arts, Polyakov . Years later, I took classes of drawing and watercolor in still life. However, self-teaching took a major role in my development as an artist. Over the years, I was experimenting with various mediums and I found my passion with oil painting. Soon after that, my passion became my business, which gave me an opportunity to share my artwork with people, who find it inspiring and uplifting.
MY ART STUDIO
I work from my home studio based in Santa Fe, Texas. Here happens 100% of creative process - pencil sketching, oil, acrylic and watercolor painting, varnishing finished pieces, creating art prints, packaging, and shipping.
THE PROCESS
I found myself creating artwork in various styles. I like expressiveness of abstract, atmosphere of impressionism, and detailed work in representational paintings. Very often my artwork happens to be a result of styles' mixture. I like to take subjects from reality and represent them in a different way than they appear in life. My main focus is always on the emotions, which painting projects on a viewer. I think visual art can have a strong impact on viewer emotions, because it doesn't tell a complete story, it leaves a space for viewer to complete it himself.
EN PLEIN AIR
En plein air (French for "outdoors") is the act of painting outdoors. 🎨 When you paint on location all your senses are engaged. You do get a true sense of the place, it's colors, mood, and feel.Sometimes I like to treat myself to outdoor painting.
