Tapping into the artist within has been a life long desire. Visual art is very new to me and a gift that has come in the second half of my life. I love to work with my hands and have always desired to find a way to express myself in an art form. Then I came upon additive and subtractive drawing with charcoal.
As long as I can remember I’ve been driven by artistic expression, which early on included sketching, pen & ink drawing, and calligraphy. I attended The Cooper Union in NYC planning to be a graphic artist. Things, of course, did not go according to plan. After raising a family and eventually retiring from executive-level administrative positions, I have turned to painting, primarily in acrylics. I’m currently getting most of my inspiration from nature, and get much satisfaction from looking at familiar scenes in a new, more focused way.
My name is Enriqueta “Que” B. Reyes and I am in love with colors. Unbenowst to me, my journey to my path in art began in 2016 when I went on a trip in Central Mexico to honor my father. A year after that trip I had this desire, this feeling to let out all the color that I had inside of me. In 2017 around the 4th of July holiday, I created my first art piece. Since then I have been experimenting with various modes of art, styles, mediums, methods, etc. I continue to learn, grow and create. My hope and wish are that my well of color never runs out. May you enjoy my creations as much as I do!
