- Elevated Realism -

The Aspen Wilderness…..Straight from the heavens


Isabella Garaffa was born in Asuncion, Paraguay,   She now lives and creates her artwork in Snowmass Village, where she has been residing for the last eleven years.  Her most treasured childhood memories are directly connected to her strong passion for the wilderness, which is translated throughout her artwork in very intense detail. Seeing Aspen trees for the first time at the age of twenty two, gave her a fresh approach to recreate them in her studio in later years.

The very nature of Aspen on canvas..

Extends our comprehension of beauty….in the same way Aspen does. Her artwork is characterized by a contemporary approach with a twist of realism and imagination at the same time


Not just a pretty picture of Aspen Trees

“I am into painting the story of the wilderness in the mountains, where the most elegant protagonist is the Aspen. … 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


“When you don’t find inspiration but SHE FINDS YOU

That’s what i call a blessing from the skies! Can’t wait to grab my paintbrush”
