About Adriana Pena
Adriana is a Chicago based artist who was born in Leon, Guanajuato, Mexico. She immigrated to the United States in 1999. Upon her arrival she experimented with many new American trends, but never lost her strong Mexican roots. Seeking to calm her deep longing for her homeland, she experimented with writing, crafts, modeling, photography, digital art, hand illustration, embroidery and painting on a personal level; but it was not until 2013 after an invitation, that she began to show her work in public and at many local events. She is now dedicated to support her community in Chicago. Although her work is inspired largely by the love Mexico, it is also an expression of her personal belief and admiration as well as respect and love for nature. These elements are an essential part of her current works of art.
