Greta Michelle Joachim Feature Artist
Greta Michelle is from Trinidad and Tobago
Trinidad and Tobago
Art became my passion in my adult life. I always wanted to paint the landscapes I would see in my travels but felt that I couldn’t. It wasn’t until I was thrust into an emotional maelstrom, that I was able to experience, through God’s divine intervention, the awakening of my artistic abilities. I started painting in 1998 and didn’t look back.
I love nature and all natural forms. I am fascinated by the ocean and the beaches in my island home of Trinidad and Tobago and seek to share what I am privileged to experience daily with the world.
It is through the study of nature; especially the water, that I am drawn even more into a love relationship with God and my art.
My style is Impressionistic. Although I paint in studio, I am captivated by the experience of painting outdoors en plein aire.
My desire is to take what I’ve learnt so far and stretch and it to its very lengths and depths; to grow and become a serious artist.
