Nubia Ortega

Nubia Ortega (b. El Salvador, 1976) joined the Creativity Explored studio in 2003. Ortega experiments with different types of media. Whether in pencil, paint, or clay, her artwork is very realistic and detail-oriented.

A focused artist, 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 chose Ortega’s work to adorn a limited edition holiday ornament for the 2010 season.

Ortega's work has been exhibited in over twelve exhibitions at Creativity Explored.
