Mireya Vela’s work explores the conflict of abuse and resiliency. Born into a dysfunctional environment, Ms. Vela uses painting and writing to express doubts and maintain stability in her life. She believes that all life begins with a woman and often ends in the care of a woman. Women are pillars in the lives of children. They teach culture, language, religion, and aesthetics. They also teach us what it means to be a woman. But what happens when these pillars are as unhealthy as the situations and environments that created them? What does it mean to be a beautiful woman? What does it mean to be okay despite experiencing trauma?

Ms. Vela is a multi-media artist, living in Los Angeles. She likes cats.
