Hola! I am Sabrina Amado, and people know me as Amadoodle. My artistic name is the union between my last name “Amado” + “Doodle” since I love to create doodles and that's how I started to create art again.
Back in 2017, I was in a dark time of my life and I found myself creating art again to reduce my anxiety. Since then I never look back, art is my oxygen and what I like to think about depression & anxiety is that they had led me to find or better to say rediscover my passion.
My artistic style has been evolving since a life-changing experience. When doctors nor pharmaceutical medicine could heal me, nature gave my life back. This experience from the last months (2019-2021) made me refocus my life and slowly modify my lifestyle.
Mindfulness and immersing yourself in nature has its healing benefit as well. I have always gone into nature even while living in the concrete jungle. I always felt relaxed and connected to nature, but for someone with anxiety and depression, it wasn’t enough to help me. Thanks to Reiki, I feel more connected to my body and soul, allowing me to have a better understanding of ways to cope with depression & anxiety by doing art therapy.
Flowers gave my life back, I took Bach Flowers which helped me. They are a natural remedy to support mental, emotional and physical well-being. Also, flowers and plants bring us presence, yet we are often too busy to stop and smell the flowers. Bringing flowers into an environment by designing & painting them will change the energy in the atmosphere. I want to have this flower power with my art.
Flowers and emotions in the way of life we are all connected:
Flowers bring us joy.
Flowers bring us life.
Flowers bring us together.
We are often too busy to stop and smell the flowers as well as to speak with each other. On a deeper level, flowers can say things we can’t. Flowers have been used for many years as a way of communication and during the first half of the 18th century, there was a blooming, mostly in the Victorian era. As explained in Floriography which is a means of cryptological communication through the use or arrangement of flowers. A good example is Kate Greenaway's Language of Flowers book (1884) which has been a deep inspiration for me.
Languages imply a wall between people, whereas the flower’s language is known worldwide, helping us connect to our roots. They feed us with energy, allowing our healing to bloom. Looking at flowers will connect people of all generations and geographics without any root barrier.
Flowers have the power to transform a place, to transform a person. They are transforming me, and through my art my main goal is to make people feel connected with themselves and with others. By bringing nature into places, letting people connect through nature inside the concrete jungle. The healing benefit of nature brings us together. They bring us presence and to enjoy the moment in which we are.
Let the healing bloom,
