ADELINA MOYA | PAINTER
Adelina Moya, born in San Luis Potosí, México, in June-1945, began her interest in art while attending The American School of Puebla, as she discovered early her talent and relative ease in drawing and painting. The love for the plastic arts turned from vocation, to almost obsession as she has explored during fifty years virtually all media and techniques, both as a student and as a teacher. The ample experience allowed her to choose and focus her attention on watercolor, oil and acrylic, tempera, and pointillism.
Formal studies at the University of the Americas (UDLA) in Puebla, Mexico as well as private instruction from art masters in Puebla, México City, and Monterrey; have formed the artist she is today, rendering incursion from realistic and figurative artwork, to abstract and contemporary, without limitation to produce sacred art in iconography and pointillism. The motifs and designs spread from still life, landscape, images of Mexican culture, to botanicals, floral, within mixed media.
