Angela Maria Gonima Lopez was born on 28 July 1950 in Medellín (Columbia). During her childhood she was very shy and not very communicative. She often played alone, and painting gave her great pleasure. Angela Maria Gonima Lopez led an entirely normal family and working life until she was involved in a serious car accident in 1983. The vehicle overturned on the street and she struck the windscreen, injuring her C5-C6 vertebrae and becoming tetraplegic. At this point in her life she decided to use her passion for painting for the purposes of rehabilitation. Since then she has painted under the guidance of the VDMFK scholarship holders Hernán Dario Velez Garcia and Hector Jairo Tamayo Ospina. Her oil paintings are very colourful.
