Northern California Arts - Master Painter

Maliheh N Bartolomeo

Inspirational Artist




As I travel, Europe and all over America I continue my study of art with a profound and passionate belief in Mother Nature as a spiritual force. I try to put these beliefs into my work so that the true inner nature of animals, the land, the sun, the trees, the rocks, and the flowing water, are all presented in my work. It is important that Nature, the Mother within all being, is brought forth in my work so that all, and family and friends are able to connect with the Spirit within all things. In addition, I am influenced by the work of many different artists. I am continuing my study of art. I enjoy painting figures, sculptures with recycled materials like papier-mâché of animals, max media art forms, plain air, on location, especially in Beautiful views, like the California Ocean, or the Sacramento and Folsom Rivers and Lakes.

For the several years, I studied at college and joined many local arts groups in Sacramento and Folsom to develop new skills to express my true feelings about the world. Through art, I found a place where I can communicate with the world with no language barrier.

I am a member of Northern California Arts (NCA), and have worked very hard over several years to earn the designation “Master Artist”. As a member of this elite group, I have the recognition of my peers and have the responsibilities of representing this Club in many activities and events.
