Cecilia has always loved art as a way to bring her dreams to life. She was always doodling as a child but it wasn't until her children were grown that she seriously started pursuing art.
She now creates art that is a fusion of reality and fantasy, born of infinite possibilities, while sparking the imagination with a magical wonder of the beautiful world around us.
She has been drawn to fantastical art since she was a child. Fairy tales, science and heroic fiction always fascinated her and through them she became mesmerized by how art can transport the viewer to different times and places while evoking powerful emotions.
She invites you to dream with her as you enjoy her fantastical reality.
"I have always loved a good fairy tale. I love to manipulate reality to capture my dreams. My passion is to ignite your imagination to see beyond the mundane." -Cecilia
Part of her fantastical reality is the tin-roofed barn her husband converted for her studio, thus the name "Tin Roof Studio". Most days, you'll find her painting magical works of art that merge realism with fantasy.
