Five hunderd years ago Columbus discovered the Caribbean, today you are discovering. The Art of Nena Sanchez.

Nena Sanchez’s colorful paintings have a personality of their own. Born in Curaçao, a Dutch Caribbean Island, she grew up surrounded by sunlight and the beautiful bright colors of the Caribbean blue skies and turquoise waters, which filled her with inspiration.

Wonderful tropical flowers, cottages, cactuses, banana and palm trees all served as living models for her paintings.
The beauty and sunlight she sees everyday have become her source of inspiration and have marked her love for the bright colors that are the base of a very personal creation and unique style, which has become her trademark.
