Inesa Preciado: “Art Has Always Been There for Us”

Published By Duke Arts / published on: May 4, 2020

Inspired by her travels around the world, Fuqua School of Business at Duke alumnus Inesa Preciado shares fine art landscape paintings she has created as a way to find escape and comfort in art during the coronavirus crisis.

Part of our “Art and Artists are Essential” collection and invitation.

“These times are challenging. However, these are the days that I hear a lot of people express that art has been healing them during the pandemic. Art has always been there for us as humans as a way to express and outpour our emotions, negative or positive. Art is the way we communicate with the divine and deep part of ourselves. I create art that those with a dreamer soul; a fearless soul can escape into.

I created the ‘Land of Ice and Fire’ series as I wanted to escape back to the beauty of the natural world during quarantine. My desire to create my own serene and beautiful world during these difficult times is why I unequivocally believe that art is what gives us hope and healing.” — Inesa Preciado
