"I am not into painting just another pretty picture of Aspen trees. Rather, I am into painting the story of the wilderness in the mountains, where the most elegant protagonist is the Aspen. My vision is to rapture their splendor in the totality of my work, as a journal of the forest. I want to paint the silent voice of the backwoods that screams out loud the beauty of His creator, with all of it’s strength and passion! I want my artwork to be an archive for the future, just in case Aspen trees are not as many as they are today".
Isabella Garaffa's artwork can be found in private collections in homes around the Aspen-Snowmass area, as well as in her hometown in Asuncion-Paraguay. You can find some of her work available for purchase in two different locations.
"...A beauty that is beyond the need of being praised, but on the contrary, it gives without asking. That is the wilderness. Untouched it came, and untouched it should be left."
