Celina finds joy in artistic expression and endeavors: painting, photography, and creative writing. As a child, Celina Duffy was encouraged to channel her thoughts into writing, initiating a lifelong relationship with creative verse and visual arts. She naturally started to incorporate her words and symbolism in new forms of media; including abstract, vibrant paintings. Seeking greater outlets of self expression and inspired by an exploration into the works of visual artists — including Joan Miro, Paul Klee, Mark Rothko, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Faustino Caigoy — she began infusing her words and stylized iconic symbols (derived from both modern and ancient worlds) into her pieces.
Her artwork has been commissioned by the City of Los Angeles, National CAPACD, Epson America, NOP World, and for the Ford Theatres play, The Romance of Magno Rubio. And in 2006, she worked with the Smithsonian Institute to produce a multimedia art exhibit. Her fine art has also been exhibited at UCLA, Artshare LA, Le Cordon Bleu Pasadena, and Farmani Gallery, and her paintings are currently on display at California ISO's newly built headquarters, in Folsom, California.
