“Color of Love”: Meet Milagros Coleman

Welcome to the “Color of Love”, a series for the month of February featuring guest artists and other surprises. A series of colorful ideas, expressions and artistic views!

I’m happy to continue featuring talented emerging artists from the Melendez family. Today I feature Milagros Coleman, all the way from Connecticut and sister to Louis Melendez, our guest from February 6.  Milagros creates one of a kind intricate detailed masks with beads upon request. These may take months to create.

Please welcome todays guest of honor, Milagros Coleman:

Milagros Coleman-Mask-Oshun

About Me: About Me:
I am an artist having compassion for that which is spiritual in connection to the
world. From this, I find purpose though bead work in the form of art expressing the
concept of Orisa. In return, I draw strength in belief that all good things has it’s
origin, such as when we discover that art is a gift that must be brought to life.

What “Color of Love” Mean to Me:
The color of love evolves intuition to play a part in how we see the world within
ourselves before reality. Color is then perceived on subject matter embraced as we
celebrate the moment. Color is happiness when the senses are harmonious bursting
with individual quality to each person who will take time with eyes wide open.

    I would like to take this opportunity to share my admiration for Milagros’ art work, and her intuitive approach to her craft. The colors, patterns, and her overall attention to detail brings her art work to life. Her humility and commitment to her craft uniquely qualifies Milagros as a genuine artist worthy of our admiration.

    I have known Milagros for many years and I am a better person for it. Her art work reflects who and what she is…a mother, an artist, una hija de Oshun.

    I’ve had the pleasure and privilege to witness Milagros’ evolution as a bead artist. From very simple single line designed notecards to the beautiful, iconic, unique, intricate,, one-of-a-kind, art. Her art would beautify any home, but it speaks deeply to those who embrace the Orisa.

    Everything about this is so beautiful! All the colors combined have just about the right balance. I find this piece incredibly impressive, along with all of Milagros’s Creations. This is a very striking and provocative piece, and I continue to look forward to the next art work. By the way, Milagros is my mother so I am very aware of the innate talent she possesses.
