Mila Cortadi Echave
I have also spent time living in the Canaries (nine months), Madrid (eight years) and Alicante (five months). Today, I live in Granada, where I have resided since 1995 (20 years) with my two children (aged 16 and 13 years old), who are Granada natives, and my husband, who is originally from Navarre. It’s quite a mix!
My aim is to make several posts each week that include photos, interviews, videos and other content involving active modern artists who wish to promote their work on my website. This is in addition to varying topics related to painting and art in general to ensure this is a simultaneously entertaining, informative and commercial blog.
My professional journey
My life has been nothing short of interesting: I was initially a nurse. I gained my degree from the University of San Sebastian in 1986. I secured a tenured position at La Paz Hospital in Madrid and I have been on leave since 1995, which is when I came to Granada.
How did this site come about?
The event oversaw the hosting of many cultural activities, one of which was an art exhibition named “TODO ARTE”. It was a painting, sculpture, graphic art, photography, comic and profiling exhibition. The exhibition was organised by DAVID CONDE AYALA (www.davidcondeayala.wix.com), a renowned plastic artist in Granada and painting teacher of mine during the last four years, and an assistant.
We eagerly awaited the Patronage Act, but it never came… So I decided to enter the online world, starting with this exciting blog. I would like to thank Andoni González, from San Sebastian, for helping me get started.
Wish me luck! I hope you enjoy it!
