Meet featured artist, Angela Navarro!
Navarro's artwork is on display now at our S. Lamar location until March 6. See more of her artwork at our Central location March 6 through the end of April.
Navarro grew up in Valencia, on the southeastern coast of Spain. In 1994 she enrolled in Fine Arts School there with the intention of becoming an artist. However, she hadn't been able to pursue a career as an artist until moving to Austin, Texas in 2012.
Before moving to Texas, Navarro managed an IT call center in England, where she met her husband. Although a far departure from painting, Navarro enjoyed her work and discovered creativity in problem-solving. She believes that people who take a creative approach in their endeavors, whatever those may be, are more successful. She told us, "It makes you less scared of change in general when you approach challenges creatively." She compared her former job at the call center to painting, explaining that, "Even with painting there is constant decision-making and in the end, the feeling of accomplishment is the same."
