 Born Philadelphia PA. United States                                                        

Damini Celebre is an artist and subtle energy healer. Influenced by Frankenthaler, Kandinsky, Twombly, Chagall and the movements of Japanese Ukiyo-e, Zen Sumi-e, Abstract Expressionism, Post-Painterly Abstraction, 19C American Landscape Painters and Aboriginal and Huichol yarn art, Ms. Celebre integrates her healing and creative worlds through the metaphor of Landscapes; the internal landscape of Soul and external landscape of Nature.
