Today I want to share with you something that I found a very interesting mix, why because she had done something great, mixing my three passions and creating unique pieces of Art., she is Claudia Salguero. I have the pleasure to meet her and see her wonderful job!
She was born in Colombia and a graduate of Arts from the University of Bogota, Claudia came to Canada in 2001.
After years working as visual artist and professional photographer, Claudia became fascinated by the boundless possibilities of digital art and in 2006 she decided to complement her natural palette with the digital brushes of Corel’s Painter Digital Art Studio. Later in that year she would win 1st Place Fine Arts Category in the internationally recognized Black and White Spider Awards, the leading international award honoring black and white photography, in London, England.
Her mastery in Painter earned her a place in Corel’s elite group of 35 Painter Masters from around the world. She is one of only three Painter Masters in Canada the sole member from Latin America.
Claudia has presented various solo exhibitions in Ottawa and has participated in numerous group exhibitions in Canada and abroad. Her works can be found in private and corporate collections.
She has been featured in publications in USA, Canada, Spain, England and Colombia as well as in Ottawa-based television shows like Regional Contact and Ottawa Living. Claudia teaches digital art workshops in her studio and regularly makes presentations about her art at professional conferences and artist associations in Canada and Latin America. At her studio she also gives self-expression workshops exploring different materials and techniques with kids and adults.
A multi-talented artist, backed by her own band Claudia is also a Latin Jazz singer. Footage of her shows can be found in YouTube under ‘Claudia Salguero’.
