Nessie Yara is an emerging contemporary figurative artist. She was formally educated in visual arts at Florida International University and the University of Puerto Rico. Using acrylics, Nessie paints about motherhood, childhood, family, and the little things in between. Her brush serves her to illustrate permanence on transitory moments in life, and her artwork reminds us of the unique footprints relationships leave in our lives. Born in San Juan Puerto Rico and a Florida resident for the past 27 years, Nessie uses a color palette highly influenced by the distinctive saturation of blues and greens found in Florida and in the tropics. Bright colors and ocean inspired themes are an inherent part of her work. Her artwork is displayed in South Florida, Ohio, and Puerto Rico. Her work will be on display at the Parkland Library June 1st through June 30th.
