The “woods” is an ancient archetype used in fairy tales symbolizing going into the mind and the soul. There is much to encounter in the forest and this relates to our lives as we come across new beginnings. We are also enlightened by the end of the journey and our eyes are opened to new experiences and wonders.
My name is Claudia Cota. My influences come from various international teachers as well as growth inside various cultures. I found that walnut stain is something commonly found in African art and woodwork, and I've added it to some of my art to give character to both live subjects and abstract paintings. Cities like Chefchaouen have made the exploration of color pallets something both beautiful and enigmatic. In short, my goal is to provide a piece that can provide color and culture to your home. Although I live in San Francisco CA, my heart was born and raised in the port city of Ensenada, Mexico. This is where I embraced a love for culture and the fine arts - especially painting, which is what I am doing full time. Obsessed by the liveliness of colors and textures, I fully enjoy expressing my feelings and emotions in every painting, thus leaving a part of my heart in each and every one of them. It fills me with joy and privilege to be able to share my art with you. Thank you!
