Following her muses (and yes there are a few), she intuitively explores many mediums, techniques and subjects, creating paintings with colorful perspectives and unique themes. Sanchirico wishes to leave the viewer with an elevated sense of color, emotion and connection through her illustrative styles and unique points of view.
"In my Dream series my hope is that the viewer will enjoy a glimpse of my visual night flights. Trying to describe a dream can be difficult as it's often illusive and encompasses many layers. The challenge is translating them into a painting while illustrating that illusiveness and bringing it into focus. Very much like the layers of a dream, I use layering on and off of colors, textures and mediums. The scratching off technique gives the feeling of being just on the other side of consciousness. The Serotonin series illustrates waking in the early hours when the last days events seem to break into a million little pieces that float me calmly back into slumber." --Gayle Sanchirico
