Golden Buddha by Mélissa Bordeaux

East Meets West ~ Inspired by Eastern philosophy and my travels through Asia, this collection consists of acrylic and mixed media paintings detailed with Swarovski crystals. Some of the pieces are adorned with thousands of crystals which I apply one by one in a meditative state. The peacefulness I experience from this creative process transcends to the images, as my vision is to create art that captures light, draws you in, and radiates a sense of tranquility.
