There will be an opening reception, free to the public, on Friday, April 12, 7-9pm. “We invite our community to come savor the beauty of the natural world as evoked by Catalina Villegas,” said Phyllis Korab, Cultural Affairs Director. “Villegas’s work is a beautiful and dynamic complement to the exhibition of Krista Steinke’s art, running concurrently in the gallery at Pompano Beach Cultural Center.”

Featuring buoyant images in black and white, which transition into colorful flora and fauna, Catalina Villega’s work is a vibrant homage to the living things all around her. Villegas was born in Medellin, Colombia and was raised in Miami, Florida. She is an illustrator and surface pattern designer who grew up drawing and painting all of her favorite plants and animals. Her work focuses on exploring the vast diversity of lush flora and fauna found in Colombia and Florida. She has made her life’s purpose to be involved in creative endeavors. Her travels and professional adventures have given her the opportunity to work as a graphic designer for a Colombian menswear line, a freelance photographer in South Florida, and as an illustrator for clients around the world. Her work has been published in various magazines and blogs including WeTransfer.com and UPPERCASE Magazine. She licenses her art to companies that make a range of products including temporary tattoos, seed packets, home decor items, gift wrap and fabric. City of Pompano Beach, Department of Cultural Affairs

Villegas studied Fine Arts at Florida International University, and has completed numerous courses with renowned international art agent Lilla Rogers (Make Art That Sells) and Rachael Taylor (Make it in Design).
