Maritza Bernal About

Maritza Bernal was born in Bogota, Colombia, and is now a U.S. citizen currently residing in Miami. At an early age she excelled in drawing, painting, and other art skills. Her talent has been cultivated with patience and dedication through decades. Her studies in oil on canvas began in Bogot____, while working as an Occupational Therapist. In 2003, she entirely devoted to explore different styles of painting. She focused on oil on canvas and after that, she became actively involved in numerous exhibitions in Argentina, Ireland, Colombia and the U.S., Dublin, Beijing, among others. She also attended a workshop on History of Art in Madrid, Spain, and a painting and drawing workshop in Florence, Italy. Now she has the accreditation as a professional artist AICOA. Barcelona. Spain. June 2010. The delicacy of her work and the perfect handling of colors and shades, creates beauty and elegant art. Under the influence of visual experiences from her native Colombia, Maritza takes the color in its fullest expression, to create vibrant paintings. In her work one can see different themes, including landscapes, city escapes, miniatures, still life, doors, flowers, animals, abstract painting, but now specializes in the figurative realism style. You can see in such a variety of painting styles the emphasis placed to colors and shapes, with which she maintains a constant compromise always searching harmony and integrity in her work.
