View Exhibition History | View Catalogue

Tata Navia was born in Cali, Colombia where she studied first art, then dentistry. When Navia moved to Florida in 1998, she decided to pursue painting full time, rather than returning to dental school to validate her previous degrees. She attended Florida Atlantic University, and began exhibiting immediately. She has participated in numerous group and solo exhibitions since 1999. A member of the National Association of College Scholars, Tata's work has been recognized with such awards as the Taller Amparo Sanchez "Best Colombian Artist" distinction.
