Gilda Garza is a Mexican artist born in Sinaloa, Mexico. She started to paint as young as she can remember, a generational talent passed down to her from her grandmother. Living in one of the most dangerous places in Mexico, Sinaloa, she was surrounded by war and kidnappings in her family. Her paintings show all of the raw emotions from these impactful events in her life. She believes the best works of art happen when pain and suffering turn into inspiration and creativity.
In a recent interview for Hermosaz, Gilda said, "My secret to break barriers and take my art to another level is to do things from the heart! What I do is my true passion and I do it with all my love, from when I start painting there is no work that does not have a part of my life in it, even when I'm at an event of mine I want those who accompany me to spend it well and make a whole experience, for me it is an honor to accompany me and travel from all over the world to see my works. When I paint, it is a part of me that needs to express itself. My secret is to do everything with the heart."
