Artist Musetta Aponte
My name Musetta, has latin roots meaning a song…My mother always told me it meant Gods beautiful music. In Puccinis opera La Boheme Musetta's Waltz is sung by the character Musetta, in the presence of her Bohemian friends, directed toward Marcello to provoke jealousy. My performance song is just that. A push pull of my true love of painting the beauty of Gods beautiful music. When you buy something from an artist you are buying more than an object. You are buying hundreds of hours of errors and experimentation. You are buying years of frustration and moments of pure joy. You are not buying just one thing, you are buying a piece of a heart, a piece of a soulÉa small piece of someone elses life. Growing up in rural Casper Wyoming art was always a passion of mine. I have been influenced by my childhood big sky country, and wide open space. I love the tactile experience and traditional materials that create a one of a kind work. I furthered my interests at the Columbus College of Art and Design, graduating in 2003 with a BFA in illustration. Since I have done freelance work with a strong focus in fine art and painting. Currently I am living in San Antonio Texas with my husband and two daughters. My work has been published/shown at The Columbus College of Art and Design The Society of Illustrators L.A.
