A Biologist Turned Watercolor Artist

¡HOLA, HOLA!

Before we get to the good art stuff, I want to tell you a bit about myself first, so here’s my story.

I’m a Puerto Rico Native, self-taught watercolor artist, creative by birth who loves to learn. I'm also a beach, coffee and music lover + a Bohemian at heart with a vintage - 80’s soul. I was born in a family of creatives, my father is a musician, my mother is a sewing genius and my grandmother, the one who started this creative family is the ultimate DIYer, crochet guru, fashion designer, among many other creative hats, oh and she cooks delicious. Since I was a little girl I learned many creative skills that I gather from all of them, I explored the ones that reasoned with me and put them into practice — HINT: it wasn’t music, I can’t play an instrument even to save my life [insert laugh]. The one creative activity I loved the most was coloring, and by that I mean painting with crayons and markers in a coloring book with the occasional doodling on the white space of the pages. I gotta say, I was the best at staying inside the lines.

In 2003 I had to choose a career path, I always felt I deep connection with nature and a curiosity for the solar system, so I decided to study Natural Science and I became a Biologist which I love. My paintings are inspired by nature, plants and its connection to the moon cycles, having studied Biology inspires me and makes more easy my painting process, because of my understanding of the natural world which is my main painting subject. In 2010 I made a Master’s Degree in Education, which helps me impart the art workshops and courses I teach today.

In 2016 I fell in love again with my old love, painting, I had lost my first and only baby due to premature birth in February 1st 2016. Watercolor painting became a very crucial part in my healing journey. I was able to express myself in an easier way. Aiden, my baby boy is the reason I am here talking to you about art. His short but very meaningful life taught me more about life & love than all the years I’ve been on this earth. And if you did the math, yes I’ve been painting with watercolors for 4+ years, and I want to share the knowledge I’ve been gathering all these years with you.

Sizing details

Art Prints are available in different sizes, they range from 5x7, 8x10 and 11x14. Check each individual listing specific details.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Every piece comes in a gift ready packaging, with a protective cellophane sleeve, backing board and sturdy cardboard mailer.

What types of paints do you use?

I use watercolors and acrylics, my favorite watercolors Schmincke, Winsor & Newton and Dr. Ph Martin's. As for acrylics I love Golden Acrylics and Liquitex. I strongly recommend that each of you experiment with different paints and brand to discover your favorite ones.

In what type of paper do you paint your originals?

When I'm painting with watercolors I only use watercolor paper with no less than 140 lb. But when I'm painting with acrylics or any other medium I use cardstock, canvas, watercolor paper, kraft paper, pastel paper, or any other fun paper.

What type of paper do you use for the Art Prints?

I only use quality materials to reproduce my art, the paper I use for the Art Prints is the Epson Ultra Premium Matte Paper & Epson Velvet Fine Art Paper. Check each individual listing specific details.

What type of printer do you use to reproduce the Art Prints?

Every piece is printed with love at the moment of purchase, which ensures the quality of the art you're getting. I use an inkjet Epson printer with archival inks.

From paper to print

I create the original art with watercolors, acrylics, inks and/or any other type of tool that has color in it. Some of my pieces are made with just one medium and some are mixed media, which makes every piece even more unique. When I digitize my artwork I like to keep the piece with as much details as possible, I want the print to feel and look like the original piece, not a piece that looks super digital or that it can be purchased at a department store. When you receive a piece from The Artsy Boho, you can be assured that you're getting a quality piece that feels and look like the original artwork itself.
