6/1/2017: Alex Velazquez-Brightbill

New month, new #wirehousedaily artist! Everyone give a warm welcome to June's daily artist - Alex Velazquez-Brightbill!

Alex will be sharing her work under the theme HOMECOMING. She shares: " 'Homecoming is a series of paintings that addresses my childhood experiences, traditions, and memories by using Mexican folk art toys such as "Lupita" dolls for self projection. This series stages the journey of a child, an immigrant, a newcomer, enthusiastically full of dreams. This is my homecoming"

Her first piece is below, titled "The Journey" - painted with acrylic on canvas. Thanks, Alex!
