Hi! I’m the artist, April Paige. I was born and raised in Sarasota, FL to two passionate families – one Cuban and one Spanish. I currently reside and have my art studio in Tampa, FL and I am very proud to call Florida my home. I briefly studied art at the Ringling School of Art, studied privately through various courses, painted in conjunction with other established artists and have developed many self taught techniques.
My love of art began the moment I was given a crayon as a child. I spent many years exploring my creativity before becoming an artist and was recognized and honored for many contests while in school. I assisted one of my art professors in creating wall murals outside of art school and then developed my own style of fine art which is still transforming today.
I am an avid music lover and try hard to capture that moment of creativity, grit or soul expression of whatever subject I am painting. Right now, I am exploring a more monochromatic style that I came to enjoy from painting along side a tattoo artist who has become a fine artist. I am very excited to create a new series that reminds me of my Ybor City heritage, my Latin heritage and my love of Latin music. I am looking forward to capturing some of the people and things that have helped to build me personally and this great city of ours.
