I'm Liliana Delgado, a mixed media artist that loves to create colorful art pieces for all to enjoy, my main goal is that my art brings joy and happiness to my collectors and brightens their homes or working spaces.
I was born and raised in Maracaibo, Venezuela, a country full of diverse cultures with evidence in its architecture and hardworking people. I'm located in Houston, Texas, a city that I call home since 2007.
All my life I've been surrounded by creators, my father was an architect and my mother a seamstress that encouraged me to always work hard and express myself through art.
I'm an Industrial Engineer trained as Production Engineer, I had the opportunity to work in the oil industry for 5 years, after that I decided to follow my passion for the arts and have more flexible time to raise my children. I started creating exclusive jewelry and handmade embroidered handbags that incorporated paintings and beads.
I'm formally painting since 2015, after taking a mixed media course with my daughter in order to spend more quality time with her. I haven't stopped studying and painting since then.
My inspiration comes from the cultures all over the world, specially from the Latino-american countries and more importantly from my hometown Venezuela, where both the architecture and people are full of colors and traditions.
My style is mixed media. I love this style because it gives me the freedom to use different mediums in order to achieve the final effect I'm looking for. I incorporate into my paintings fabric, lace, beads, paper, stamps, and stencils just to name a few.
I love to paint girls and emphasize the history and roots of each different country and every painting includes a secret message specially for you!
In all I'm a color obsessed artist that truly believe that colorful paintings make us happier!
Last but not least the why of the name. People often ask "Why don't you use your name as a brand?" It would be the logic thing to do, right? Well, when I created the company and decided to register, it never crossed my mind to use my name, I only thought of who moved me to do it, and in my case is my family, they are my "Sweethearts", without their support it wouldn't be possible, therefore the name: "Lili's Sweethearts"
Thank you for stopping by!
