Profile Information

About Me:
As a child I fondly remember my grandparents who always inspired me in arts and crafts. I recall the easel my grandfather gave me to draw and paint to the scarf’s I used to crochet with my grandmother. From needle point to pottery there was always some kind of new venture in where using your imagination was needed in some way. When I paint my dragonflies they are in remembrance of my abuelito, Pablo, and humming birds are for my abuelita, Arcelia, whom I relish and hold dearly close to my heart. In high school the only class I loved going to was art class. As I grew older my mother who I think is a talented artist myself, and I would go to ceramic painting class which was always too short, always. I grew up, had kids, went to work and there was no time for art. About 6 years ago my body decided to go on strike! I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia among a couple other diseases, so I went to taking care of patients to becoming a professional patient and was home-bound. At the end of the year 07' I walked into the Senior Citizen Center here in El Sereno and just so happened to walk into a ceramic art class, of course I stayed even though I'm not a senior. The instructor Fred Alvarado gave me my first canvas in January 08'. I was hooked! I did water color and sketching in the past but never acrylic on a canvas. A few months later Fred introduced me to Yolanda at Casita Del Pueblo and I showed for the Dia Del los Muertos that same year. I'm grateful to everybody who has helped me along this soul-stirring, intoxicating journey. I'm delightfully appreciative to the patrons who choose my work and support me. I admire my three boys Rene, Aaron and Alex whom are my inspiration in life and my art. My older son Rene whom is an artist as well as my toughest critic and I him, of course he does it con cariño and I honor his earnestness. It's a mother and son collaboration, it bonds our spirits. My twins who passionately encourage me and stimulate my tired brain with fresh ideals, another collaboration with the sons and momma, which just embraces my family into each and every piece of art that I do. As a mother I hope that I instill tenacity through my experiences and they will prevail no matter what life brings them. I've always said "Do what you love and everything will fall into place", you will be happy rich or poor because you’re doing what you’re passionate about and at the end of the day that's what counts. I'm finally listening to myself, lol. Miranda

Miranda,

In March 2010, there will be a series of events in Mexico City, Mexico, Los Angeles, California, and other cities, meant to be a ritual of mourning for the femicides in Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua: Art as a pathway of opposition and resistance to violence.

We invite you to be part of this initiative of art activism. Below is the link to the blog we have dedicated to this and where you will find the Call for Entries. This invitation is open to all individuals, groups, organizations, artists and activists. The events in March 2010 will include awareness raising creative workshops, intervention actions, plays and performances and the exhibition of the art work received through the call for entries and the resulting art from the workshops. http://unaoracionporjuarez.blogspot.com/

For those who do not live in Mexico City or Los Angeles metropolitan areas, we invite you to organize your own community activity during the same month of March, 2010. It could be an Art Exhibit, a book discussion, a movie screening, a poetry reading, etc. We ask you to include the original title of this event “A Prayer for Juarez,” and to send
us your schedule, and later on, photos and documentation, to be included in the blog.

To include your event, or for any kind of issue related, please write to us:
In the US: aprayerforjuarez@gmail.com
In Mexico: unaoracionporjuarez@gmail.com

Creating protest art transcends culture and gender. We are united in a larger community of like-minds and humanitarian goals. We thank you in advance for your dedication and your prayers for the women of Ciudad Juarez. NI UNA MAS!

PLEASE FORWARD THIS DATA TO PEOPLE YOU KNOW
WHO WOULD BE INTERESTED IN PARTICIPATING

We Are San Francisco, a poem about the current state of our city

Wrote a poem to go along with my installation at Somarts called We Are San Francisco.What is San Francisco to you?Change, change. Shifting, shaping rapid, thoughtless, minimize, multiply, erase, recreate.Homogenized beauty, suburbs in the city. A rainbow of people, fade into shades of grey.Onslaught continues, more land, more money, more buildings, more restaurants, more evictions.This change to fear or face for those who stay, whose soul remains?Perhaps like the serpent we must shed our…See More
