Piedad's story

About Me

I was born in Colombia and ever since I was young I was interested in art, because my grandfather was the sculptor of my village. I always stood out at school because of my painting and drawing skills. I studied Human Resources and art was helpful for communicating with all people I interacted with. It was then that I started my first private workshops, because I understood the importance of art and I resolved to help people discover all their potential through the different techniques I knew.


Nací en Colombia y desde niña me atrajo el arte, porque mi abuelo era el escultor de mi pueblo. En la escuela siempre sobresalí por la pintura y el dibujo. Estudié Recursos Humanos y el arte me sirvió para comunicarme con las personas diariamente. Fui entonces que inicié mis primeros talleres privados, porque entendí la importancia del arte y me propuse ayudar a las personas a descubrir todo su potencial a través de las diferentes técnicas que yo conocía.
