About Me: Bibliography

I am Maricela, I was born in Mexico City little over 4 decades ago.

In a small apartment in Mexico City I had my bedroom, which I used to share with my mother, it was constantly full of illustration cut outs and scissors (my mom was a hairdresser). I also kept pieces of old boxes that I pasted with my grandma’s glue to create little houses and moving cars.

I used to play with my wooden pencil case; the colours became couples and married, although the browns were eternal loners. With my mother's hair razor I learned how to sharpen each one of them.

When walking to school I would look at planes flying above me in the sky and I thought “when I grow up I will travel a lot”.

Flying must be wonderful!

My introduction to the theory of visual arts was with a book called Los 100 Grandest de la Pictura (The100 Greatest Painters) I was 10 years old when my godmother gave me this book and I was enchanted by it.

Later on I studied in the School of Painting, Sculpture and Engraving, La Esmeralda. In Dublin, Ireland, I studied in Dun Laugher Institute of Art Design and Technology and in Bally Fermont Segnior College.

Later I travelled to Neuchâtel, Switzerland, and started a family and the new life, I created multiple exhibitions and two wonderful children.

Currently, I live in the south east of Mexico in the tranquil place near the sea, developing my artistic productions evermore.
