My name is Verónica Pérez, and I'm from Mexico City.
I love this web site, it has been very inspirational for me to see how people around the world exprees themselves with this media.
I've started creating with papier mache about 10 years ago, after creating with ceramics, and other clays, i finally find this media and just love it, it gives you endless opportunities to create, and also love the opportunity to add and combine, what we Mexicans love: color.
I have had the opportunity to exhibit my work in some important Museums and galleries in Mexico,f .e. :
Nov. 2003. "From Life to Death, The Arts and Crafts of Mexican cardboard crafting”, Museo Nacional de Culturas Populares Mexico City, among many important art crafters like Leonardo and Felipe Linares (their father Pedro Linares, is famous for creating the Alebrijes)Museo Nacional de Culturas Populares, in Coyoacán in Mexico City. Joint exhibit
Aug 2007.“Jugarte, jugando a hacer arte”. “Jugarte, playing to make Art” Museo Guillermo Spratling, Taxco, Gro. solo exhibit. among other important museums and galleries.
