Born in Cuba, GrettaAlva is a young artist who started in the art world at the age of four, playing the piano, which she continued to play until the age of fifteen.,She then decided to attend The Fine Arts Academy in her home town of Cienfuegos, since finishing her studies she immigrated to Canada where she is currently developing her career as a fine artist now residing in Ottawa.
GrettaAlva works in pen and ink, her drawings reflect the mix of reality combined with her own imaginative ideas.
I see the art of drawing more than a career, more than an everyday job, 'is my obsession',,, it's what consumes me taking me to a world of fantasy and surrealism.
