Career

Mayra's creativity is a celebration of free brushstrokes similar to the abstract expressionism action painting style used by artist Jackson Pollock in 1948. Her techniques are diverse meaning the visuals end up looking symmetrical, asymmetrical, fun and wild. She chooses specific paintings to finish them with several layers of resin to reflect a deeper contrast between hot and cold colors. This chemical develops a 3-D effect without having to add extra shades or more paint to brighten the painting. Mayra loves the serenity of the beach and the movements of its color which is why inspires her to paint coastal beach scenes using her own imagination. The imagery tends to be highly attractive and relaxing for her collectors.​
Mayra is a huge fan of having beautiful music as background noise, something that sounds sludge-drone-rock-metal-psychedelic with hard drums is always playing while she paints. She loves going to small concerts because they are more intimate and she feels more connected with the artists performance. Among other things she deeply admires the art of urban architecture, fashion collections by iris van herpen, iris apfel and nature-based photography. Her favorite television Network is HGTV Fixer Upper show featuring the natural works by Chip & Joanna Gaines.​
