About Miriam Besa

My family and friends call me Tootsie. I am a painter/sculptor. I work with oil, mixed media and design wood 'incisions', a low relief sculpture. This technique was invented and used by only one artist in the world, Virginia Ty-Navarro, my teacher. In 1967. I received my Bachelor of Fine and Applied Arts in the College of the Holy Spirit in the Philippines. I also studied under Morris Kantor at the Art Students League of New York from 1968 1970.

In New York City, I exhibied in various Madison Avenue galleries and twice at the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts Avery Fisher Hall. In 1970, I was commissioned to do two wall murals for the Ascension Church in New York City.

In 1974, I switched to graphic design and had enjoyed affiliations with McCall, Los Angeles Times, San Francisco Chronicle, Global Sources, United Healthcare, Inc. and freelanced for various advertising agencies. I retired in 2010 and have since returned to my art which was always a big part of my life.

My art captures emotions and aspirations of women, who are the embodiment of everything that makes me who I am. My art is all about portraying and expressing emotions. To me, art is the synthesis of my personal feelings, the theme, the colors, the materials used and my technique; all come together to echo my message.

I start with an idea, a state of mind or mood. Then it evolves into a composition where color, texture and rhythm become my primary subject. When my work is finished and a painting completed, I am filled with a sense of self-discovery and purpose. I would like my viewers to experience this as well.
