About Chulynda

 salt hippy bio


I am an intuitive inspired artist, and homeschool art teacher living in Panama City, Florida with my husband and two daughters. I create vibrant and up lifting artwork that is intended to create a stirring in the viewer’s soul. My paintings can be found on a large scale, as well as smaller pieces on canvas and paper. I also, offer my artwork in prints and colorful greeting cards. I sell online, in Historic Downtown Panama City, and in my favorite eclectic shop, Sea Green Gallery in Nags Head, Outer Banks, North Carolina.

Painting allows me to create from a place of inner harmony, creating presence in my everyday life. I am continuously inspired by the vibrant colors of tropical flora and fauna which invigorates my soul.

I believe art is healing and should be accessible to everyone, either in a physical form or through instruction.

I am passionate about sharing how to paint and create silence from the outside world to connect with the inner self.

I seek to convey a sense of wonder in my work that creates pause, reminding the viewer of the beauty that is nature.

I choose to come from a place of truth to inspire others to do the same in their lives.


Thank you for supporting a dream that I hope inspires others to pursue theirs, a dream that demonstrates to my girls to chase theirs, a dream that spreads joy and positivity to others in a time where we must support each other to spread light in a world we’ve never navigated before. 

All the best,

- Chulynda, Salt Hippy
