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. Currently, she is exploring the energetic and vital connection to self and the natural world through the multi-layered mediums of drawing, painting, encaustic, and printmaking.
Damini has studied with Jeanne Bessette and Kazuaki Tanahashi, she holds a BFA in Painting and Photography from the California Institute of the Arts, a Masters Degree in Acupuncture, and is a Certified Expressive Art Facilitator and shamanic practitioner.
