Andrea Alonso


My name is Andrea Alonso, I am a 34-year-old woman, I was born in Monterrey Mexico in 1986, where I currently reside.
Since I was young, I have had a particular taste for the plastic arts, influenced by my maternal grandmother and, since then, I have followed that path, with the difficulties that this represents in my country.
I am an Architect by profession, and I have a master's degree in Business Administration, additionally I have studies in Contemporary Art in Latin America, a subject which I particularly love and I would like to deepen due to the mixture between our origins and Western culture.
I have been professionally made artworks exclusively in oil painting for 8 years so far, I am currently looking to give a twist to my work incorporating different trends.
