Cecilia Villanueva, born and raised in Mexico City, brings both world history and imagination to her work. Her training began when her father, an architect, would give Cecilia blue prints to draw on. He thought she would draw on the back of the large sheets, but she instead spent hours tracing the intricate web of blue lines on the front. All of Cecilia´s paintings, whether oil or ink, have hidden surprises in them, their location known only to her daughter. Villanueva states that "...artists carry the consciousness of their community. Artists see what is going to happen before it is observed. It’s more than beautifying your home. We are the voices and translators of community culture and history."
