Selene Nunez-Cruz is TelenitART
Explore the vibrant world of my self-taught artistry, rooted in a childhood immersed in the tropical landscapes of Veracruz. I delve into the beauty of natural and abstract forms, embracing a palette of colors and textures that transcend realism, aiming to evolve and birth novel artistic concepts. Infusing my creations with the rich tapestry of my Mexican heritage, my work is a celebration of diversity and cultural identity.
As a scientist, my artistic curiosity knows no bounds. I thrive on experimenting with a myriad of materials—watercolor, oil, acrylic, alcohol ink, markers, clay, and paper—unleashing a symphony of creativity in each piece. From eclectic people and pet portraits to abstract fine art and mesmerizing landscapes, my portfolio extends into the realm of 3D, encompassing wood toys, jewelry boxes, mandala stones, mosaics, and other captivating art-crafts.
Connect not just with the art but with a purpose that goes beyond the canvas. Over 30% of the proceeds from my creations are dedicated to making a positive impact by supporting non-profit organizations and animal shelters. By choosing my art, you become part of a collective effort to uplift both people and animals in need.
