Maria Fernandez "Essence of Life" Photography Art Exhibit
Maria Borrajo Fernandez, local photographer and artist is currently displaying her collection of photography and acrylic paintings. Her exhibit captures breathtaking views of people - young and old, animals, nature, and lands near and far.
Maria was drawn to painting and drawing at a young age. She was later accepted into the National Institute of Art (San Alejandro) in Havana, Cuba. Learning like the masters in the old traditional way, Maria studied drawing, painting, sculpture and other media. She also worked in pottery, hand-painted tiles, portraits and murals through the years. It was during her travels, Maria discovered her joy of taking photos. With photography, Maria has learned to express herself by controlling light, color and composition. With the camera, she is also able to create portraits by capturing a person's feelings and expressions in many different ways.
Maria's Essence of Life exhibit runs through June 30 at the Southwest Branch Library.
