Gamundi creates art in order to develop her ideas and concepts that reside within her thoughts.  The fusion of music and art transports her to another dimension where she gives life to her works of art.  Youth, in general, has inspired her works; their dreams, their games and activities, their magical religious rituals.  Gamundi paint’s youth’s symbiosis with nature: the flora, fauna, rivers, the Caribbean sea.  The Dominican Republic is made up of people of different races, and this mix of race is represented in the beautiful adolescents she paints, who are generally situated in an idealized space in nature within the Island of the Dominica Republic.  There, in this idealized utopia, one can create their own safe bubble, their own world, of peace and harmony with the Universe.
