“In her latest work, ‘Walkers’ she expresses that need of the inner search of humanity.” - from the artist
Mexican Artist Leticia Herrera lives and works in McKinney, Texas. She moved to the US to pursue her formal art education at LSU, earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts Graphic Design in 1992. After her degree she returned to her country and started working as a Creative Director during the day.
But in the evening, she worked at her home studio as a freelance artist, trying to explore her own creativity.
As her artwork evolves to a more personal style, Herrera discovers within herself a deep and strong sense of color, and a connection between her emotions and her creativity.
In 1996, she decides to paint full time and abandons her career as a Creative Director and designer and pursues her art. But it was not until the death of one of her closest friends, only a few years ago, that she immersed herself in her painting, finding a renewed sense of joy and inspiration for her life in the expression of her inner creativity.
Occasionally referencing figurative or landscape-like forms in her works, Herrera’s art defies simplistic labels and categorization, instead finding always a source of inspiration for her own personal search.
In over 25 years of painting, she has depicted a diverse amount of representations from the figurative, to the abstraction. No matter what is her stage or what are the surroundings of her experiences, there is something that she cares the most about: humanities’ inner world, feelings and sensations.
She expresses that through color and texture in her abstract compositions and through stories of her magic surrealism portraits of imaginary moments. She paints in series from the heart. In her latest work, “Walkers” she expresses that need of the inner search of humanity.
