María Alejandra , who goes by the artistic name “Mago”, is a Colombian Artist and a professional gastronome. Mago studied gastronomy because she always wanted to be an artist, and food is a beautiful form of art, one you can experience with all your senses. She aspires to employ her artistic talents to become a chef and a nutritionist.
She started painting since she can remember, and her mother, a self thought artist, was the one who thought her some tricks.
When she was 13 years old, Mago suffered from depression caused by getting bullied at school. She resorted to art as a form of therapy. She continuously expressed her thoughts and feelings through different forms of art; drawing, painting, writing and even makeup.
"This is more than a hobby for me, this is one of my biggest passions. Creating characters and stories and telling them to others, to help people escape from reality in a healthy way. " - María Alejandra
