My Biography

Leticia Bernadac was born and raised in Durango, Mexico. Even at a young age, she had a keen interest in drawing and art. She often created drawings for the schools she attended and encouraged by her teachers, entered art competitions.  A major influence in her life was the vast frescoes and works of art she enjoyed seeing when visiting her city's government buildings. The admiration for the enormous paintings she saw, was a major influence in becoming an artist later in her life. 

 

Shortly after High School, Leticia moved to Finland and lived there more than a decade. She continued moving to other countries and lived in Sweden, Indonesia, Malaysia, Japan, Chile and in 1998 settled in the United States.  The unique knowledge and experiences she gained from those different cultures made her rethink her true passion for art. Upon settling in Georgia, Leticia decided to take up the mantle of painting and continued taking art lessons and attending workshops at different locations around Metro Atlanta. 

 

After many lessons and much deliberation, Leticia decided to "having the courage to do what was meaningful to her"- obtain an art degree. The most natural place for her to continue her dream of obtaining a formal art education in the traditional approach of the old masters was in Finland. She was accepted at the St. Petersburg Academy of Arts in Kymenlaakso E. Repin in Kotka, Finland that focused on classical art with daily work in the areas of painting, drawing, plastic anatomy, perspective, the technology of painting, and composition.  Leticia graduated with her art degree in 2011.

 

Leticia works in a wide variety of mediums including watercolors. pastels, charcoals, encaustics, but her true passion are oils. She specializes in Portraiture, Landscapes and Still lifes.

 

Leticia Bernadac's love of nature and exciting colors are seen in her paintings. She has a simple classical approach to painting; her work combines a graceful use of color and brush strokes, using such traditional methods like glazing in combination with the palette knife. Her artworks are in the mediums in oil, watercolor, pastel, charcoal drawing and lately incorporating encaustic in her repertoire. She executes compositions rich in detail in the subjects seen in her landscapes, still lifes and portraits.

 

Her work has been exhibited in Kotka, Kouvola, Finland, and currently holds exhibitions around metro Atlanta, Georgia.
