Border Artist 26
Lucia Martinez: I am a Chicana visual artist from the desert and la Frontera of El Paso and Cd. Juarez. I am also a translator and instructor whose works reflect the resilience of border communities. My work has been published by Mujeres De Maiz, and Voces Del Silencio. I collaborated with the poet Jessica Ruizquez and our work was published by the Girl God, Mujeres De Maiz, Sinister Wisdom, and Queers Around the World. I have exhibited my works through the United States and Mexico. Recently I did a workshop for Tumblewords Project and I have a BA in Art and Spanish from the University of Texas at El Paso.
