NORA BENALCAZAR

I was lucky enough to be born in a small but picturesque town in the Ecuadorian Andes. My inclination for art started early when I was in elementary school. With few colored pencils, I used to create pictures on paper and collect them. Although I never had the opportunity to study art formally, I gained a computer science degree at The Escuela Politecnica Nacional in Quito. Later, I got married and moved to Houston where I raised my two kids. Moving to Houston came with many difficulties, but in the long run I believe it helped us grow as a family. Currently, I am taking classes at Glassell (school of art of the MFAH). Being fifty and trying to pursue artistry has been remarkably challenging for me. I am struggling and fighting with colors, shapes, and thoughts, to ultimately find pictorial space in my compositions. Now I am striving to learn more about how to use and combine different media to get more freedom and versatility to express my inner self.
