Born in Argentina, Yanina Cambareri traveled extensively in Europe and South America. She now lives in Encinitas, California, with her husband and two daughters.
Although Yanina graduated from the University of Buenos Aires as a Software Engineer, she has always been interested in Fine Arts. The daughter of well-known Argentinean artist Pascual Cambareri, Yanina studied Fine Arts at Mesa College, concentrating in black and white photography as well as pencil and charcoal drawing. Her favorite medium is now watercolor, she finds excitement in the transparency of the medium and the bold use of color. Her paintings often reflect local and European landscapes and convey her love for nature.
Yanina has studied with San Diego artists Lola Juris and Sandra Bray, and she has won several awards in local shows. Now an art teacher in the Encinitas and Rancho Santa Fe School Districts, she's also a member of the La Jolla Arts Association and the San Dieguito Art Guild.
Yanina volunteers for a San Diego-based non-profit organization called ARTS (AReason To Survive). ARTS is dedicated to bringing hope, healing, and self confidence to the lives of children and youth facing adversities by providing expressive opportunities through the visual and performing arts.
