About the Artist
Maritza Hernandez is a Chicago artist and has been working in collage style for 7 years. She received her BFA in Fine Art & Illustration at the American Academy of Art in Chicago, IL.
She specializes in custom pet portraits and has had her work featured in Gibson’s- Wild Meadow Farms dog treats, “DIY Dog Portraits” by publishing company, Walter Foster Jr in 2015 as well as Cloth Paper Scissors: Faces “Creating mixed-media portraits” Fall 2015.
Each piece she creates is made with recycled magazines making it unique and one of a kind. Up close the surface looks abstract but when one takes a look from a distance the entirety of the piece becomes realistic.
Her pieces featured are subjects that bring her comfort and happiness: from a chicken quietly laying her eggs, hound dogs that have expressions or isolated locations that help one quiet their thoughts, to plant life in general. She tries to represent the ideal “quiet” and “comfort” that treats the busy thoughts in an introvert.
