Artist Statement

I seek to create inspiring and empowering art. I am excited by everything that surrounds me, intrigued by man-made and nature’s creations, and compelled to combine the common and the unusual, colors and materials, emotions and positive energy.
A large portion of my artwork is dedicated to projecting a positive and inspiring image of women by portraying strong, elegant and proud ladies. My series of "Empowered Women" began in 2014 and continues today. This collection includes a tribute to all the amazing mothers who fight to bring up physically and emotionally healthy children, to confident women who are comfortable with their bodies, to natural beauties proud of their heritage, and to those of us who are different and don't necessarily "fit" in to societal standards.
You will find my contribution is uplifting and empowering, sometimes a little daring, but always tasteful.

Artist Bio


Florencia Clement de Grandprey

Born and raised in southern Spain, Florencia is the daughter of an American mother and a French/Italian father. She has always been creative and curious. Her first oil painting was at age 5. Spanish architecture, flamenco, colorful and elaborate patterns along with a simple elegance, influenced her childhood, and now her artwork. Apart from a few basic painting and drawing classes, Florencia is a self taught artist.

Florencia has been involved in interior design for the past 15 years, and has lived in Florida for nearly as long. She combines her love of the classic masters with contemporary design flair by incorporating and up-cycling materials such as fabric and wall paper samples into her mixed media paintings. Florencia is also a professional makeup artist and uses her knowledge in art and makeup artistry interchangeably to create realistic portrait-like paintings.

Florencia won best in show in 2017, first place in Mixed Media in 2014, 2015 and 2016 as well as the “People’s Choice Award” in 2015 in the South Florida chapter of the International Interior Design Association “Art by Design” contest. In 2016 she was chosen as a finalist and regional representative for Miami in the Bombay Sapphire “Artisan Series” contest showing in Scope Miami as part of Art Basel Miami. In 2017 she was among the top 25 most voted artists in the 2-D category while participating in the international “ArtPrize” contest celebrated in Grand Rapids, MI. During Art Basel Miami 2017 she was chosen as the featured artist for the Brown Jordan design center in the Miami design district.
