Katrina Bello is an artist whose paintings and drawings are about a search for analogies between the natural world and the human condition. Rocks, trees, grasses and puddles are some of the imagery that are predominant in her works.  Katrina majored in Industrial Design at the College of Fine Arts in the University of the Philippines in Diliman and continued her commitment to drawing and painting when she immigrated to the United States. She received her BFA from the Mason Gross School of the Arts in Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey, and her MFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, Maryland.  Her work has been exhibited in the Philippines and the United States and she keeps studios in Quezon City, in Las Vegas, Nevada, and in Newark and Montclair, New Jersey.
