“Art is my everyday, I paint, I create, and I get inspired by my surroundings”.
Patricia Beltran, born and raised in Minas Gerais, Brazil where she started her career as an artist. She initiated her journey in art attending private lessons on fabric painting in her early ages, and then found her passion in oil and acrylic painting on canvas. After years experimenting different techniques, she defines her style on palette knives; the artist states, “It gives me freedom… I have learned how to see beyond the details and focus on shapes, color and values.”
