New Works by Silvia Trujillo

I’m still here; painting a lot and teaching when I can. The past 18 months have seen some challenging times for everyone! I wish each of you well during all the difficulties.

Looking for beauty where it can be found, experiencing life’s simple pleasures, and being in the moment as much as possible; these are the things that are getting me through. May the same be true for you.

Painting is a way of life and a source of salvation for me. Offering these works of art for others to enjoy brings me great joy; so when you have a moment take a look at my latest offerings.

You can view my latest paintings on eBay- see my store link below. Just let me know what interests you, and contact me directly (via email), for an additional 15% savings.
