About the Artist
Leticia was born and raised in Mexico City. She inherited from her father a great interest in painting and drawing, and enjoyed illustrating and copying objects that she saw around her. In high school, on the advice of her technical drawing professor, she entered the National Institute of Fine Arts, completing a year of plastic arts that later led her professional career. Leticia has a degree in marketing and a certificate in interior design form the Institute or Arts and Humanities. Following her passion for studying art, she entered the renowned Academy of San Carlos to continue her art education, taking courses in painting, drawing, composition and the human figure. Additionally, Leticia leads classes and workshops on various techniques such as fresco, charcoal, graphite, pastel, watercolor, oil and acrylic. Recently, Leticia continued her art studies in the U.S. for three years at Austin Community College. She has exhibited nationally and internationally in countries such as Canada, France, London, Greece, Japan, Singapore, and Argentina, among others.
Culture, people, and their traditions. This is fundamental to my art practice and what is reflected in the series “My People and Their Landscapes”. The great love and pride I feel for my country, Mexico, inspires my paintings and through my work, I aim to show the rich, fascinating diversity of its inhabitants. I am curious about the background of each person. Why does he have that job? Why does she wear these fabrics and wear those colors? What traditions do they follow and what are their dreams? By translating their stories onto canvas, I can make these traditions and these ways, a part of my legacy.
