Mariana Ospina is a multidisciplinary artist currently residing and working on Long Island, New York. Currently a senior studying for her Bachelor's in Fine Art at SUNY Old Westbury. Mariana explores the human condition with her work by the use of expressive lines and experimental mediums. Most of Mariana's inspiration comes from her own experience with insomnia, bipolar disorder, and sleep paralysis. These situations that are presented in her life have not held her back from doing what she is most passionate about. Art for her is a therapeutic form of expression, that has also inspired her to pursue a degree and later a career in Art Therapy.
