(February 1, 1985, Victoria de acentejo, Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain) Single, no children. Only cats and dogs
My name is Leticia Estévez (Afonso, that is why my signature is * EA) and I was born and live on an island full of contrasts that can be the muse of any painter, and I think that color is reflected a bit in my paintings.
I studied Film, Video and TV Direction and Production and worked for a few years in the news programs of my autonomous community, a very small place.
In recent years I have been looking for other paths, I am also a veterinary assistant and canine hairdresser, because my other great passion is fauna and flora.
I worked brief periods as a hairdresser, also in a hostel ... But not only for love but also for health, I ended up getting closer to art and specifically taking refuge in painting, a discipline that I have practiced as a hobby since I was a child. I love combining techniques, especially mixing the spatula to create different textures that allow me to play with depth. In addition to the color ... I often have the idea of a more sober work, in muted tones and when I finish I find myself in front of a canvas that explodes in co lor.
Sometimes I can't help it. I have a weakness for color and I get excited because the canvas is my mirror, where I vent my emotions that are not always good, and it is fortunate to be able to turn them into something positive. I almost always paint at home, but each stroke is like being able to fly.
Last year I was lucky enough to receive classes from the painter Nuria Mora, also from Tenerife, and I hope to be able to return.
