The FIU College of Medicine Mammography Art Initiative, in collaboration with the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum, held a fund raising event on October the 11th. A selection of art pieces were auctioned off and the proceeds went towards a research fund benefiting breast cancer education and care in Miami.

My piece entitled "What's left of me", pastel on paper, 60"x42" was auctioned off to a head of industry and patron of the arts.

I won the Bombay Sapphire Miami trophy, competing against a flurry of talented artists from South Florida. As a result, I will be representing Miami at SCOPE this year, one of the world's most prestigious art fairs held during Basel Art Week, the most renowned and sought after art show, considered by artists and buyers alike as the Mecca of contemporary art. You will find my work showcased at Scope. Slated to win the national competition, I will have a solo exhibit at Scope NYC and my own mural in Wynwood in Miami, famous for its street art and arguably boasting the best murals of any city.

Artwork Details

Comments About This Piece

After a meaningful return to my Scandinavian homeland, the starkness of Stockholm's bay waters hypnotized me. How serene, how quiet, yet also my birthplace. Inspiration poured in for a series of female figures born out of cold waters. The resiliency of female strength is coupled with the frigid waters, intensifying the survivalist instinct and the impact of the birthing process.

This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges. It comes varnished and ready to hang. 

Oil painting

Oil paint uses natural oils, such as linseed, poppy and walnut oil to bind the pigments. Oils are slow to dry, which allows the artist to rework the painting to achieve the desired effect. Also, they blend easily, which helps to achieve certain colors. With the rise of naturalism in 15th century Early Netherlandish painting, oil paints became preferred to quick drying tempera paint. Artists wanted a medium that would allow them to achieve detailed and precise effects in their paintings. Consider all of the detail in the masterpieces of Jan van Eyck and Hieronymus Bosch!

Stretched canvas

Canvas is a heavy-duty fabric used as a painting surface. When a canvas artwork is labeled stretched, it means the canvas has been wrapped around a wooden frame (the ''stretcher''). Stretched canvases typically do not require framing.


A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
