About The Artist
Hello! I am Patricia Vargas, owner and artist of Parima Creative Studio.
What I believe in:
"When you love and laugh abundantly, you live a beautiful life"
This is the motto in which I live my life and run my business by. I believe in living a life as stress free as possible. In surrounding yourself with things that best exemplify beauty to you. In breathing deeply. In laughing abundantly. In spending time with people who are genuine and have good hearts. In bringing your good vibes wherever you go. I believe that art can touch our souls, inspire our lives, and provide us with blissful moments.
Creating art is my way of spreading happiness around the world. My goal is to create paintings and prints that exhibit positivity, vibrance, and will put a smile on your face every time you take a look at it. I hope that my art pieces will always put you in a good mood and bring about a smile whenever you pass it by.
For this reason all of my pieces are created and packaged with care, and most importantly, love. I use only high quality canvases, paper, and top my originals off with an archival seal that will protect your investment for decades to come.
The Doors are Open:
I am extremely honored that you are considering one (or several!) of my pieces to display as part of your space. If at any point you have any questions about any of my pieces, please do not hesitate to email me. I would be delighted to put your mind at ease and answer any questions you may have.
A little bit about me:
I started painting at a very young age (10 years old). I would often watch my mother create beautiful landscapes while I was growing up, and one day I decided to try my hand at it. I begged my mom to take me to Michael's so that I could buy my first canvas board and inexpensive acrylic paints and brushes. Of course, not really having any sort of idea of how to paint, my first few pieces weren't exactly stellar, but at the time I thought that I had created a masterpiece. I loved painting so much that it quickly became my go-to hobby. I slowly but surely started getting better, eventually creating more complex landscapes, like those my mother would paint.
Fast forward 8 years later, and I attended the University of California Santa Barbara and decided to major in Art. During my studies, I fell in love with vibrant colors and particularly enjoyed playing around with various shapes and styles. This led me to start developing the style you see today.
During my years in college, the thought of pursuing art as a career seemed far fetched, and decided to venture into other career paths. However, as the years passed I started to get requests from friends and family to make paintings for their homes and the idea of being a professional painter no longer seemed so radical.
Travel another 6 years forward in time, and I opened the virtual doors of Parima Creative Studio on January 22, 2013.
About the name:
The name Parima is actually a combination of my name, my sister's name (Arianna), and my mom’s name (Maria). They are two of the most important people in my life, and I would definitely not be where I am now without their unwavering support and endless love.
