Originally from Mexico City, Maite has had to shift gears into different languages and cultures throughout her life. She divides her artistic expression equally fluently, moving between ways of seeing the world around her, as well as between different mediums: print-making, drawing, watercolor, painting, photography, and encaustic. Her focus has been creating hybrid combinations of these.
Maite’s background in graphic design and photography is evident in her paintings. Using the constraints of graphic design and photography in contrast with the freedom of abstraction, keeps her work balanced and in harmony. This juxtaposition pushes her to explore the relationship between the two, using them to complement each other in her work.
