Featured Artist

Papel Picado with a Modern Twist"Almost all my images derive from my childhood memories growing up Mexican American, with a constant awareness of keeping my culture in the forefront of my work.  I began creating Papel Picado for myself as a self renewal and preservation, however, my work is not my own any longer, I believe it speaks to a much bigger audience."

-Beatriz Vasquez
