We also host a series of events such as seminars and workshops, which aim to provide valuable information and resources for our patients. Through these events, we are able to connect with members of the community and share knowledge about dental health that will benefit individuals in the area.

Miriam Navarro

Spanish by blood, Venezuelan by birth and Texan by circumstances, Miriam combines all three aspects of this journey into her artwork, by applying methodical and meticulous techniques she learned through her profession.

Miriam graduated with honors in Architecture at the University of Texas at Arlington where she learned the tools that contribute to shape the way she approaches her paintings. “As an architect, I see the world as a white canvas, full of possibilities and opportunities controlled by order and shapes. In art, particularly painting, the white canvas is not just a figure of speech: It is an unavoidable fact that sometimes takes the lead on how things should be shaped, behave and endure. Both, dependence and autonomy, outline my paintings; constantly challenging my dreams and expectations with each stroke. I believe a good piece is one that conveys my intentions and vision while taking a life on its own.”

She started using color pencils at school and as a hobby. Later she discovered the magic of watercolors and the softness of oil painting, and recently she started learning, using -and loving- the generous characteristics of acrylics and still give her paintings the softness qualities of oils by using her fingers and palette knives as her tools, resulting in a colorful and vibrant art collection.

“My art pieces are about discovering, explaining the unexplainable, and depicting a life full of experiences and dreams. These pieces capture glimpses of that journey; I hope you’ll enjoy them.”

Sabrina Santacroce Meinardus

Granddaughter to Italian immigrants and born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Sabrina Santacroce Meinardus has the intensity of those who know what they want in life – and in their art. She has studied fine arts with masters like Eduardo Medici in Argentina, Jennifer Spencer and Elizabeth Padgett in the USA. Sabrina exhibited her work at several group shows including the prestigious Centro Cultural Recoleta in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She also presented her art at various corporate settings and won awards for best work on canvas. Her paintings are in several private collections.

Sabrina is a systems engineer and a passionate artist who brings to the canvas an unexpected combination of structured chaos.

Sabrina’s artwork has evolved through different phases but had always retained specific commonalities like the use of bright colors and inspiration from lifetime events. Her paintings are at the intersection of expression and abstraction.
