Artisan Odyssey named Breezy their artist of the month, here is the published article.
Artist of the Month
Cuban born, here in the US since the age of 1, Breezy's artwork shows the colorful passion for life that her ancestry is so famous for!
This delightfully inspiring humanitarian is the epitome (the perfect embodiment) of the Artisan Odyssey. Surviving a stroke 5 years ago left Breezy disabled for life... which in turn required that she retire from her professional career as a licensed physician, dentist & acupuncturist with her own practice of 25 years.
During our phone interview, I asked Breezy "how long" she'd been painting, "All my life!" was her answer. I tried to tactfully inquire as to "what type of disability" she suffered (as I could not imagine), and her answer was "Completely deaf." My response... "then how are we having this conversation?" "I have a machine on the phone" was her reply. I was very impressed and in awe. Breezy's art is what helped her surpass the shock and depression that her sudden disability brought about. "I was very depressed and wiped out. My art kept me going", she said.
Aside from her art, Breezy's passions extend to helping people however she can... cooking for the homeless at 'Camillus House', holding crack babies at Jackson Memorial Hospital while they cry endlessly... and more. "Through spirituality & God, I channel love" she proclaims!
Breezy's artistic inspirations come from nature, God, spirit, love, the power of the moment, and the knowledge that we are all connected. She does not draw before she paints!
Partial proceeds from the sale of her paintings on her next exhibit will go to the Miami Children's Hospital and her mother.
On July 19th, at 7 PM, an exhibit of Breezy's artwork can be seen at Zu Galeria, located at 2248 SW 8th Street, Miami, during a special "Coconut Theme" gallery event. Currently, there is one particular piece of interest, titled "Piano Man", that Breezy has on display at the Zu Galeria, of a deaf man trying to play the piano, filled with frustration and rage.
Breezy's artwork can be found in her 'online gallery' at: www.BreezyArt.com or at Zu Galeria Fine Arts.
