My name is Griselda Tello, I have been painting for over 40 years, my main source of inspiration has been landscapes, specializing in painting mystical redwood forests to visionary scenery.
Some have called my work Metaphysical Surrealism, many of those images can be found in the cover of books, art magazines or enhancing the web pages of writers and poets. Although painting is my first love, assemblage and art dolls has become an essential spiritual practice.
I love the process of sculpting with polymer clay and working with textiles,
yarn, fibers and beading creating a context where magic begins.
I’ve been inspired by many cultures where dolls were made symbolic of the sacred…full of meaning and creativity…here there is an element of reverence and solitude that guides me gently into that type of art. It is a form of meditation…a beautiful Spirit dance.
