Dulce Ruiz

Dulce’s love for painting began when she was a child. Armed with paper, crayons, and markers she would draw for hours starting a love for all things creative. Since then she has nurtured her talent by learning to work with many mediums: acrylic, watercolors, jewelry, garden sculptures, pottery, and murals..

“I love making things, and my adventurous spirit keeps me striving to become a juggernaut of creation. I enjoy nature, gardening, geometry, theories about existence, music, deep conversations, connecting people, and dancing.

When she’s not working professionally she continues to hone her craft through teaching art and using it as an enticing vehicle to elicit change.

“I love all things creative and I want to continue creating work that aligns with telling the stories of our ancestors, celebrating the gifts we have today and building a better world for those to come.”
