Romani Berlekov is an unofficial member of the local 'outsider' artist community in the Boston area, and you can find her on any given day on the streets of Boston, painting and selling her creations. Like so many other friends and colleagues, she is completely self-taught and continues to exuberantly experiment and learn. Her journey of creation is that of her own evolution.
Romani has been drawing and creating as far back as she can remember, and added oil painting and watercolors to her repertoire during her teens, and more recently began experimenting with acrylics and mixed media. Creating has long been, and continues to be, an amazing meditation which produces pure and joyful manifestations in the physical realm.
Romani says her works are not created to necessarily inform or enlighten, but rather to share and reconnect to the beautiful world around us. Her work bountifully provides the observer with keen reminders of the sheer beauty and subtle grace which is often overlooked in the rush and bustle of our modern society. Based on a realist orientation, with a touch of whimsy, her style is a presentation of simplicity, elegance, grace, and truth.
"There is a particular, subtle magik in the first few hours after daybreak. I find my zen here...
Divinity flickering in the first rays of golden sunlight through the branches of the forest ~ Sacred shimmering atop the waves as they caress a naked shoreline ~ The holiness bursting in the buds of the early spring light...
I grab my canvas, brush, and oils, and walk along the edges of the early morning with you."
