My name is Beatriz Macias. I am an artist originally from the beautiful country of Colombia, but I have also lived in Spain, the United States, and Italy. I love traveling and what it implies; I am inspired by the people, their culture, their food, their architecture and their art.
I earned my MFA at California State University Long Beach in 2002. My work has evolved from a very intimate look at my roots and my culture to a broad, open take of the places we temporarily inhabit. I am interested in the souvenir, the object that recalls our experience with the other, the reminder of our travels. I am also interested in capturing moments like still memories, so I am forever taking pictures of everything around me.
Besides making art, I am a wife and a mother. I am fortunate to do what I love and that includes taking care of my family and teaching art to young children.
If you will like to see more of my work, you can visit my Flickr page and my Etsy shop.
Thank you for stopping by.
