Denise Nogueiras is an actress, sculptor, painter & art history lover, Denise never tires of any creative pursuit. Always a lover of art and creative expression in its many forms, her interests span a wide range. Her current creative focus is on her painting which friends describe as whimsical. Her philosophy encompases finding your own truth and uniqueness thru expressing ideas, feelings and philosophy in physical form either thru the use of painting mediums, sculpture or theatre. Inspired by her favorite artists, she learns life lessons. Grandma Moses did not begin painting until she was in her 70s – “it is never too late to discover and explore your talents.” Installation artist Christo works on some projects for over 25 years until seeing it come to fruition where it then lives a very short life before being dismantled – only to20remain a memory by those who experience it. Lesson: “never give up”. She believes art is a personal journey, just like life, and that just like in life, there is always something new to learn. A piece of artwork is as unique as the individual who creates it. Discovering your individuality & not judging it is part of the exiting journey. Her enthusiasm for art is apparent in the classroom and with her students. To view some of her work please visit www.enpowermentcreation.com.
