Nubia Ortega was born in El Salvador in 1976 and has been making art at Creativity Explored since 2003.
A gracious woman and focused artist, Ortega is always eager to begin new projects and experiment with different types of media. Whether in pencil, paint, or clay, her artwork is very realistic and detail oriented. She spends ample time on each piece, first methodically laying out a composition and then carefully choosing colors to fill in her landscapes and portraits. Most recently, Ortega has excelled at clay hand building, creating stylized human figures and plant forms and firing them with ultra-colorful glazes.
CB2, our community arts partner, chose Ortega’s work to adorn a limited edition holiday ornament for the 2010 season.
