Mariam’s vibrant and unique expressionist style draws on folklore, myth, and life to engage the viewer’s imagination. She incorporates flower essences, marks, writing, and collage elements when laying the foundation for a painting.
Her medium of choice is cyanotype on paper arranged with botanicals, imprinted by the sun then washed and dried to shades of blue reminiscent of the Blue Ridge Mountains where she resides.
About her process she notes, “I love a blank surface. When creating, I become an explorer and the surface becomes a door through which I travel, chart the terrain, and return with an art story about the journey.”
Mariam accepts commissions and enjoys collaborating on art; she can be found online at A Pocket of Dreams.
