About Caryl Pomales

Caryl Pomales Florida Artist
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been guided by a creative force. 

Creative magic began for me as an adolescent. My love of color merged on to canvas in a free and exciting way and I was inspired to continue on with learning more and expanding my creative painting practice. I was hooked! My adult career was diversified however, I continued to deepen my knowledge and awareness of self and my connection with the universe through my artistic expression. I never lost sight of my ultimate dream of becoming a full time artist, painter and creative designer.

Although it seems like yesterday, it's been a decade since my mom, (my very best friend and mentor) passed away from Alzheimer’s disease. In her final months, she lost her ability to verbally communicate; however, though words failed us, I knew that something must still speak. I learned at this point that when words fail, images and art speaks. Creative signs of affection and drawings became my primary form of communication. A picture became worth a thousand words and a lifetime of love.

My painting practice was influenced by and continues to flourish out of a need to communicate and to express joy, love and compassion. It remains a daily labor of love. I truly believe that art shines a light and speaks, some days as a delicate whisper; other days it is a mighty roar. Regardless, I listen to this voice, as I truly believe that light shines a light, and is the only form of expression that speaks unwaveringly!

It's no secret, I have great compassion for people, animals and our planet.
When you purchase a unique piece of artwork from me I'll be donating a portion of the proceeds to a worthy cause supporting mental health issues, protecting domestic animals  or helping to save our planet from further destruction. 

Listen to your inner voice, rediscover the child that lives within you, be curious and brave, break a few rules along the way and follow your dreams with kindness  in your heart. The rest will take care of itself.
