Self taught artist, working primarily in expressionism with watercolor and mixed media pieces inspired by nature and watercolor itself. Becoming an artist has been a journey of giving up total control, allowing a piece to come to life with its own voice, and having the opportunity to create freely. I typically begin a piece with a general idea of what I want to portray, and then I allow the process to go without too much fussing. On inked pieces, I completely freehand the line art and let the watercolor blooms guide me.

Nora Evita Aresti is a New Jersey native currently residing in Peekskill, New York. She discovered her love of photography while studying at William Paterson University where she received her BFA. She began to explore the woods surrounding her school and take pictures of herself in front of mirrors she found left behind. Aresti uses the theme of nature in her work alluding to transformation, adaptation, and the art of evolving. She is a conceptual artist and works with ceramics, paints, and draws. After a 2016 accident, she found herself struggling with chronic pain. Problems with her back and hands left her unable to complete everyday tasks and this jeopardized her artistry, but her profound love for the outdoors brought her comfort and renewed vision.
