Trained as a fashion designer and having worked in the fashion industry in New York for more than 25 years, Inma started painting in watercolor using flowers as a subject with the idea to create silk scarves. As the learning progressed she became more interested in the structure of the plants and botanical painting with watercolor became more important as her techniques improved.
She is an artist with strong sense of color and form. She finds inspiration in her own backyard. She captures the beauty of the natural world. Her interpretation of an hidden scene painted larger than life with brilliant transparent watercolor paints, creates a natural truth telling story.
In the fashion industry, Inma is continuously recognized and sought after for her exceptional technical skills and has been called a sculptor of fabric. She has designed and collaborated with Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera, Donna Karan, Diane von Furstenberg, Alexander Wang, Jason Wu, and others.
Inma has won a small business excellence award from Latina magazine, a design award and scholarship from Hispanic Designers, Inc., and was a participant in Idea Como Salutes Tomorrow’s Designers, a leading fabric trade organization in Italy. She is a graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology with a BFA in 1991.
A native of the Dominican Republic, Inma lives in Connecticut with her son.
