Marbé Briceno-Velázquez

“Designers are born, not made.”

This is undoubtedly true in Marbé's case; creativity runs in her family.

Marbé's interest in Art & Design began as a little girl by watching her mother, who is an Impressionist Artist, painting in her studio, who also taught her to create art with both oil and acrylic painting. Furthermore, at an early age, she designs her clothing, and she would continuously draw pieces of furniture to have them made in wood, she would repurpose used items for her bedroom and her own house, transforming what was already made, taking it to an unexpected level.

Born in Northern Venezuela, Marbé spent most of her time outdoors surrounded by beautiful mountains and stunning beaches, entranced by the colors and patterns found in the natural world. While living in Miami, Florida for more than two decades, (which she also calls it her hometown) she became fascinated by the exotic Art Deco architecture — and now living in Los Angeles, California. Since 2013, the fusion between landscapes as well as architectural and eclectic scenes in her surroundings fostered her ability to create, "I have always enjoyed appreciating the art within nature and architecture. Every time I look around me, I see beyond the ordinary. I'm always observing things from a different perspective, feeling inspired," she says.

Earning a Cum Laude Degree in Art & Architecture in Interior Design, in Miami, Florida; helped Marbé enhance her talent in Design, detailed drawings/sketches, murals, paintings, as well as learning several drafting software applications such as AutoCAD, 3DMAX, Chief Architect; among others. After earning her degree, Marbé was awarded a scholarship to take Masterclasses in Europe, such as Art, Interiors of the World, Furniture, and Photography in the prestigious University of Salamanca, Spain; with an extension Masterclasses in France, Italy, and Portugal.

While her pronounced education and degree gave her a solid understanding of the architectural world, and of what Design is, which of course it's indeed fundamental; what truly makes her stand out from the crowd is her natural talent, her proven skills, and her real-world experience.
