About the Artist
Natalia Montoya is a Colombian artist born in Medellin, Colombia. She is currently living in Santa Barbara, California USA. Her curiosity is focused towards matter, color and density. She generally works with fine layers of color and plays with different tools such as a spatula or a brush to achieve gradations. She wants to convey the joy and love that gives color to her soul and to the viewer. Currently her work shows more of a combination of abstraction and texture, called mixed media. She has also painted flowers, still lifes and landscapes that create the influence of impressionism. She works with oil, acrylic, plaster sculptures, body paints and more. Natalia also offers contemporary calligraphy and craft workshops for children and adults.
