About the Artist

Natalia Arias was born on July 7, 1994 in Miami, Florida. She began at the age of two or three forming colorful scratches that caught the eye; always thinking, creating, and molding her future in the art world. In the fall, she will be attending Maryland Institute College of Art where she will continue to grow as an artist, creating visions that spin the imagination with her diverse talent. 

 

Artist's Statement

I have always possessed a genuine passion for art. I enjoy expressing myself visually and want to positively impact others through my artwork. Line and color along with unity, balance, and the use of geometric pattern fuel this piece and truly bring out the beautiful flower I chose to depict.
