María Isabel Delgado


Maria Isabel is the Creative Founder of LDVinci Art Studio. She is a South American Artist from Colombia. You might be surprised that besides Maria Isabel’s Artistic Talent, she is also a graduated lawyer from the “Univesidad Autonoma of Bucaramanga” (www.unab.edu.co) in Colombia – South America, class of 1994. After graduation, Maria Isabel worked for the Colombian government at the “Fiscalia General de la Nacion” (www.fiscalia.gov.co) – equivalent to the “Attorney General’s Office” in the USA. Nevertheless, her passion for Art started at a very young age. Maria Isabel started to paint since she was three years old. Her parents were very encouraging, and decided to cultivate that aptitude by bringing her to Painting lessons with great local artists. One of her first tutors was a nun named Ma. Graciela from the “Colegio de la Presentación” in Bucaramanga.

Later, she attended a great number of Art Schools, among them she studied at the “Academia de Bellas Artes de Santander” (Academy of Fine Arts of Santander). She was also disciple of a well-known artist named “Christian Toledo Rueda”. Maria Isabel developed skills on various painting techniques like Acrylics, Oils, Charcoal, Ink and Pastel, which shaped her own painting style. In the USA, she studied Art History at Brigham Young University (Utah). Maria Isabel’s love for Arts never was an obstacle to keep up with her regular studies. Quite the contrary is that discipline that has given her strength on pursuing her goals. Art has strengthened her a sense of balance, sensitivity and persistence.
