Begoña Lafuente Artist Bio:

There is a Spanish saying that fits me well, “she was born with a pencil in her hand”. It pretty much describes me. Since childhood art is what I care about the most. The process of creating is what makes me happy. Through my art I express my thoughts and feelings. I fought against all odds to focus my studies on what I love instead of what could be “useful”. After obtaining my degree in Fine Arts at the Complutense University of Madrid, I made a fair deal between “inspirational” and “useful” during my early professional years as a graphic designer with a successful career. I moved to the Netherlands in September 2009. Since then I work as an independent artist. I no longer feel regrets about not being “useful”. I just go on exploring, being creative and passionate. I have no boundaries on a specific style or medium therefore my art is a continuous and amusing exploration through different techniques and media- paintings, photography, scanning and digital manipulation, drawing, sculpture, printmaking-. I can´t avoid having a tremendous joy redesigning my own artwork from time to time, and why not, tickling with humour the collective cultural background. Twenty years as a designer are still very heavy on my back but monoprint is a fine media for that matter. I have paintings which have the urgent need to become reality, but among my work you will also find experimental photographs that have the irrepressible desire of becoming a painting. Both means express my mood. As a viewer you can feel this and interpreting it in your own way. It is more about the joy of the process than about the final result. Though I had taken part in various art exhibitions in Spain when starting, it was not until 2013 when I became more active. My art has been exhibited every year since then in some art fairs in the Netherlands; Amsterdam, Bergen NH, and Nieuwe Niedorp. Some other exhibitions are planned for 2017 in Bergen and Amsterdam. Some of my artwork belongs to collectors in Groningen, Schoorl, and Amsterdam (The Netherlands), Bonn (Germany), Barcelona, Madrid, Alicante, Valencia, Canary Island and Menorca (Spain). My art has appeared in on line shopping, and has been licensed for wall art, calendars, home accessories, and bedding. https://zazzle.com/bybego, https://begonia-lafuente.fineartamerica.com
