This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following biographical information, submitted February 2007, is from Cynthia Nicholson, whose source is an exhibition invitation sent by the artist, Roberta De La Vega, postmarked 9/1/1966.  The exhibit was a joint show with De La Vega's husband, artist Robert Farrington, at their home in Venice, California.

"Roberta De La Vega has been painting since her early childhood in West Texas.  While mainly self-taught, Roberta has traveled much in Mexico from where she has learned to love the talents of the Mexican muralists.  She enjoys painting the children, flowers and trees of Mexico as well as of Venice, California.

Roberta works in many mediums, and often combines oil, tempera and encaustics in the same painting.

Her paintings can be seen in galleries in Venice, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills and on La Cienega, as well as in her home on the Marina Peninsula, where she has her studio.

Also from Cynthia Nicholson is the verbiage from the artist's bio sheet attached to Nicholson's floral painting by the artist.

"Roberta De La Vega has been painting since her early school days in West Texas.  While self taught, she has travelled much in Mexico and has been influenced by many of the Mexican muralists.  Roberta enjoys painting many natural subjects, so flowers and trees fill many of her canvases.  She also enjoys capturing the facial expressions of adults and children, and many of these subjects are found locally and in Mexico.

They (referring to Robert Farrington, bio'd at the top of the sheet) met and married in Taos, New Mexico, while both were there painting, and now have a home and studio on the Marina Peninsula in Venice, California.  While many of their paintings are done in and around Los Angeles they travel as far north as San Francisco, and as far south as Tehauntepec, Mexico, for their subjects.

After a trip they have a premier outdoor showing of their most recent works, and then leave most of the paintings at galleries in Brentwood, Santa Monica, Hollywood and Beverly Hills.

No. 14, Anchorage St., Venice, Calif. - Ex. 2-3408 (different address, same phone number as 1 above)."

Note from Nicholson: I have a floral by her, about 8"X10", large gold frame.  As a rule, I'm not into florals, but love this one.

It's my understanding that Robeta De La Vega is considered to be one of the prominent early hispanic artists in Los Angeles.
