Maria-Victoria Checa – Bethesda, MD

In my abstract paintings, I like to evoke feelings of freedom, liveliness and transformation. Through hyper color contrast and dynamic composition, I try to create movement and instability on my canvas. I thrive on spontaneity, and highly value adaptability and flexibility. I am fascinated by abstract painters like Gerhard Richter and Vassily Kandinsky. Armed with my fancy squeegee and various painting knives, I merge techniques from both painters to create colorful imaginary forests and landscapes.

I was born and raised in France. My father was from Nicaragua which I have visited numerous times. I presently live in the Washington, DC area where I teach Mathematics part-time at Montgomery College. I also love learning Argentine Tango. ​

I hope you enjoy discovering my artwork.
