Artist Claudia Garza draws inspiration from nature, travel and people. She has a BA from St. Edward's University and a MA from the University of Texas at Brownsville.
This collection, entitled "Mujeres," is an homage to the different women that have shaped Garza's life. Some are based on real-life characters, such as her regal great-grandmother, "Dona Adelita," who wears fine jewelry and a couture gown and others are simply a representation of the indigenous women of her native Mexico, as is "Nina con Sandia". Although seemingly juxtaposed, both women play an important role in the fabric of Mexico's culture and both paintings have a stylized, abstracted figure, reminiscent of Colombian artist, Fernando Botero.
