took her first leap of faith in the art world and painted her first piece, titled; "A Spanish Song" (2004) a portrait of her mother, published on
the American Artists.com and the America Artists magazine, October

for painting kept growing stronger, Migdalia decided to expand her education in art, and in 2008 she graduated with a BA from
the University of Colorado. Against all odds and in the middle of the economical recession, she decided to pursue a career as an artist. Today, her art is available and sold in art galleries,
exhibits, and on the Internet. She does paintings on commission, and provides
public painting demonstrations, as well as private lessons, and workshops. She
loves teaching others to paint, and strives to make a difference, and help others through her art.
