Meet The Artist
Havilah Abrego, born and raised in Southern California, is a 24-year-old artist and growing marine biologist.
The art of painting runs through the Abrego family. At eight-years-old, Havilah was introduced to acrylic paint by her father in his backyard studio in San Dimas, California. With her father's guidance, Havilah began to practice and hone her own technique, and quickly tapped into a powerful connection between her love for the ocean and her voice as a painter. While simultaneously diving into the study of marine biology, she started to capture her intimate experiences with the ocean through her creative work. Today, Havilah continues to cultivate the growing relationship between her life as a scientist and as a landscape painter, and hopes to inspire each spectator to embrace the beauty and magic of the natural world.
Havilah has held shows and exhibits throughout California, all shows focusing on the unique beauty of the Central Coast. She currently creates in her private studio in Ventura, while also fulfilling her lifelong dream of studying marine biology and exploring the ocean, the life source of her inspiration.
