Marta Paramo was born in Madrid, Spain in 1993. At 2 she was diagnosed with Leukemia and was given 5 months to live. Thanks to a true miracle she is still with us today. Marta started early to show her artistic gifts and won many awards in international art contests. She was the first student with IDD ever admitted to the Fine Arts department of the University of Madrid. And the first one ever invited to exhibit at the ‘Open Art Fair’ in Utrecht, Holland. Marta lives now in Miami and is applying to the New World School of Arts.
