Catherine Acosta (b. 1995) Ever since she was a child, Catherine was extremely interested in drawing. When she was at school, she was known for her participation in the artistic activities there. When Catherine was twelve years old, she was granted the opportunity to participate in a painting course where she learned basic techniques. Then one month before she graduated high school, Ani Art Academies held a presentation there detailing the studio to open in Rio San Juan, her hometown. This was exactly the opportunity she was looking for to further develop her artistic skills.
