Beatriz Castro Heredia

A little bit about me: ! “Where there’s a Will there is a Way” ! Everyone wonders and dreams about what they will become when they grow up. I remember wanting to be an astronaut, then a singer-magician -yes, some kind of wonderful combo-, and sometimes maybe a writer among many other beautiful jobs. ! But I also remember trading my brand new bicycle for a little red box of 24 Faber Castell watercolor pencils with afriend when I was 8. I remember grabbing my uncle the architect by the arm when I was 10 in the middle of a birthday party to teach me about perspectives and shapes. And also the time when, later on, my Dad signed me up as a birthday present in the professional school of drawing (ESDIP) when I was old enough to go to college. One of the happiest moments ever. ! In 2011, after accomplishing my 3 year studies at ESDIP -starting up with animation and ending up with human figure and anatomy with Amaya Gúrpide at her private Atelier-, I started perusing my “continuous search”. It took quite a lot of time and many efforts, but I got accepted later on in the National Academy in NYC. And so everything started. ! I moved from Spain to Manhattan and initiated my studies at the NA, plus some extra classes with Michael Grimaldi and Dan Thompson at the Art Students League. Also I started working as a monitor for Eric March and Gabriela Dellosso. That Christmas I was asked for one of my drawings for it to be exhibited at the National Academy Museum. -“In between psychology and form”- That brought me to meet some really interesting people, who would afterwards ask me for some private commissions. The next summer -2012-, I decided to get my backpack and go on a trip through Europe that would take me two months, and which taught me the inconceivable about cultures, people, love, colors, shapes, lights and structure. I travelled back to NYC around September 2013, but this time to participate in an intensive one-week workshop to work with both Amaya Gúrpide and Jordan Sokol at the Art Students League. I worked as their monitor. Later on, on February 2014 London was my home for two months. I explored its streets, stories and daily routines; and afterwards, Florida in May 2014 for three months. I’m currently residing in the beautiful North Wales with my ‘British family’.
