ABOUT ME

A Passion for Art

Miriam Alba Romano was born in the city of Rosario, Argentina, lived half of her life in the United States, and is now back in Argentina creating art. She lived in Los Angeles for 15 years and studied art at 'La Universidad de Humanidades y Letras de Rosario' receiving a master's degree in 'National Professor of Drawing and Fine Arts.' Her teachers included Miguel Ballesteros, Luis Ramoneda, Hugo Ottmann, and Pedro Sivori. Miriam has been an artist as far back as she can remember and always considered herself an artist since her earliest memories. It has been and continues to be an unstoppable and incessant activity in her life. What is contemporary art? Whoever creates art is always a contemporary of their own time. In her own words, 'my art is a voyage where the communication of souls is what best describes the essence of that voyage. Art has been a ship, a weapon, a medicine, and a flag in this nation of our universe. Now it is.' Her first exhibition, at the 'club español' in Rosario began when she first started studying art at the University. She has had the privilege of exhibiting her work at the Bacardi Gallery in Miami, next to Colombian artist, Fernando Botero. She has also studied under the great American artist from Fresno, California, Mark Rodriguez and continued to study under the renowned, Miguel Ballesteros, until his recent passing. She has obtained awards and recognitions in the states of Pennsylvania, Florida, and California and also in Firmat, Rosario, and Buenos Aires in Argentina. She is now working in her studio in Roldan, Santa Fe and continues to produce new work. Miriam desires that her artwork speak for itself.
