“Hello to all. It is a pleasure to introduce myself. My name is Ericka Fernandez Aragon. I am proudly Costa Rican. As a stay-at-home mother, I have always liked crafts; I wanted something to entertain myself. Painting has always drawn my attention, since my mind has often wanted to express itself and I have always seen painting as the best way to do that. I love painting, and it has been 8 years, more or less, since I became inspired by this marvelous art.
“I had the opportunity to learn from a woman who taught me the entire process of painting, from the framing to the final details. I had the desire to learn from her and share my knowledge. She was an incredible person who was free of ego in all the things that she knew. She loved teaching each detail until perfection was achieved. Thanks to her, I found my passion. I never thought I could achieve so much; beforehand, I just made little crafts like flower arrangements, Christmas ornaments, and decoupage pieces made with recycled magazine paper.
“Nevertheless, I have always felt that painting attracted me, so I practiced and practiced, and little by little I began perfecting my technique and creating compositions that my family and friends loved. With them I improved bit by bit, but I began to lack motivation. I rediscovered my motivation while working on a project for the formation of micro-companies. It encouraged me greatly, my dreams and goals grew even more, and I painted with more passion and dedication, which brought me work from more clients.
“Today, I have the good fortune of being able to continue to paint. I have always liked being able to create pieces with accessible prices. I dedicate a lot of time to each piece, the end result being complete satisfaction and being able to transmit my love and passion for painting to my clients. I also dream that I will be able to teach other people to paint, showing them all of the techniques that were once taught to me.
“I know that through my artworks, people will be able to feel connected to nature with something marvelous that they can appreciate every day. Each piece features colors that make it unique, adorning beautiful spaces in homes and offices alike.”
