Lizbeth Mata, BFA,BA

My work embraces thoughts, emotions, and questions that raise speculation, a push toward confrontation, and the learning of new atmospheres, that in turn reveal the undiscovered.


The roots of beginning

At a very young age, my father Jesus Antonio Mata has always been a great inspiration, watching him create is always magical for me. And so it has been a great blessing to hold the long tradition of Master artists teaching their apprentices and for that artist to be my father, it is an incredible honor.

Mata's drawing was unveiled July 25 and will be on display at See.Me's Long Island gallery until Sept. 10. 
The See.Me group hosts art shows for people submitting work on its website. The Story of the Creative Exhibition showcases less than 1 percent of its members, and this exhibition showcases hundreds of artists from 103 countries.
Mata has been involved in art her entire life, "My dad is an artist so there's always been that interest. When you get that first college application, all I could think about was art, so that's what I started on."
Mata credits her father, Jesus Antonio Mata, with getting her interested in art and supporting her to pursue her passion. 
"My dad is a sculptor and he's always been a great influence on me. Just seeing him work with stone and carving it always amazed me, and it was always something that I wanted to do."

Mata and her parents traveled to New York City for the opening of The Story of the Creative Exhibition in July.
