Eumelia Castro is a visual artist and illustrator born in Venezuela. As a little girl she showed her ability to draw, especially small dolls. Over the years, she knew she wanted to be an artist. Eumelia studied and graduated in advertising and worked for many years as an illustrator, graphic designer and art director in advertising agencies in Caracas, Venezuela. In this job she learned new techniques such as watercolor, colored pencil, marker and others that eventually led her to turn to painting and illustration, making it her main hobby.
In 2002 she emigrated to the United States and now lives in Miami, Florida. This was a defining moment for her, it was like a “new beginning” in which she became interested in improving her knowledge of art, meeting other artists, participating in art fairs and fully integrating art into her daily life.
Over the years, she developed her own and unique style, to which she has remained faithful to this day. A style with a figurative tendency, in which she always depicts the female figure with rich and strong colors. Eumelia works with a palette knife and applies the impasto technique to create soft and dynamic textures, which she combines with the watercolor technique.
Eumelia Castro has successfully exhibited her work in art galleries in Miami and art fairs in the United States, Belgium, Spain, France, Italy, Beijing, China and Seoul, Korea.
