Aurora Cruz

Artist Statement: 
In my art, I like to represent strong women and capture the emotion of certain situations women may be exposed to/ My paintings are colorful and draw attention to the character and what that character's emotion is. I also get inspired by everything I see. If I find something beautiful, strange, or interesting in my daily routine, I will immediately draw it/paint it. I mainly try to convey through my drawings/paintings, how much fun I had while doing them.
Bio / Description: 

I was born and raised in Puerto Rico. I moved to Urbana-Champaign in 2006 for my graduate studies and have been living in the area ever since. I've always loved art and my passion is drawing and painting. Two years ago I started focusing in my art again (after finishing graduate school) and it has become my obsession. I've realized this is what makes me happy and I hope my love towards painting comes through my art.sneakers
