Pastels and Paintings
Originally from the Dominican Republic, Lusmerlin is an artist, writer and chemical engineer. These different disciplines transfer their characteristics to her visual work: technical rigor, liveliness and symbolism.
Lusmerlin’s subject matters derive mainly from quotidian elements and first hand experiences, expressed through pastel, ink, oil, or acrylic. She approaches color and linework in an intuitive fashion.
Commissioned work includes book covers, private and public murals, and artwork across different media. Lusmerlin’s community involvement includes pro bono art classes for minority children and motivational talks at community colleges and non profit events.
