Profile Information

About Me:
I am a lover of the arts, both as an artist myself and as a collector. The passion of learning and inspiration is what birthed this community of amazing Latina artists. It started with just one artist on my personal website ( back in 2004 and has organically grown to what it is today. A community of over 500 women. Can you imagine if we were all in one room! What a party that would be of creativity, color and life.
