Adriana Peña is a Chicago-based artist who was born in 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 most of the visual art techniques on a personal level. In 2013, she began to show her work in public and at many local and national art exhibitions. Although her work is inspired largely by her love of 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.
