Alicia H. Torres



 




I was born in Colombia. Studied in Barranquilla at Marymount School. Spent four years in Switzerland where I studied art history. There I had the chance to visit European museums and enjoy and admire what I love most ¿ art and all of its expressions.

I graduated in psycho-pedagogy at the Corporación Universitaria de la Costa. Presently, I reside in Miami, Florida, where I took Ikebana classes at Fairchild Tropical Gardens with the Japanese teacher Mieko Kubota and ceramic classes with the master Rafael Consuegra where I had my first exhibition. I also took portrait classes with Yovani Bauta. I have completed painting courses for five years at Miami Dade College with renowned painter Baruj Salinas.
