ISABELLA GARAFFA - her FALL Collection begins for 2022....

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 many 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.

"This one has taken me a long time to finish , but I’m finally on the other side. As I sit here in my studio the wind is blowing. There’s always this special kind of wind in the month August, that subtly reminds me of the change of season that is coming ahead. And though I hoard every little moment of summer here in the mountains, the nearing of fall time is somehow as good as when spring is arriving. As nature slowly prepares for what’s forthcoming, so is my heart. Transitioning can be threatening when you put your trust in the environment of safety you’ve created for yourself. But nature shows us over and over again that in order to grow, changes must happen. And they are good, when you know Who’s hand is holding yours.".



Decades in the making, ISABELLA has definitely found her calling. This local, self taught superstar pays homage to our surroundings like no other. Her  expressions of Aspen’s Winter are highly sort after. Check out the latest winter offerings HERE
