About the artist
A painter and designer originally from Ventura, CA, Sima currently resides in Laguna Beach and is studying at Laguna College of Art and Design. Since early childhood, she has exhibited an infatuation and unique ability within the arts. Today, her ambition has cultivated a passionate investment in her blossoming career as an artist.
Sima captures fluid gesture in still scenes, fostering a raw engagement within the form of self reflection and human relation. This is lucidly executed through her exploration in the elements of the natural world, the nude figure, and often times their mutual interaction. Her fearless strokes appear simultaneously effortless which blurs the line between reality and dreamscape. The results are heavily expressive and subtly experimental, unlocking an implicit dialogue between the intensely personal and their surrounding natural environments. With each layer of paint applied, the work’s meaning deepens, and the artist creates an essence of the true love of her life; the sea.
In regards to style, the use of connective mark making can be credited much to the the artist’s beliefs; that every and all things are one. In attempt to convey her idea of “raw beauty”, Sima currently paints images of people, places, things and their relations with each other and surround life.
