ARTIST BIO/STATEMENT:


Leticia Rodarte is a Mexican-born artist who has been living in the United States for the past 30 years. And the last twenty years as a Pilsen neighborhood resident. She is a self-educated artist who says to have red paint instead of blood in her veins. Her art (paintings, hand-crafts, jewelry, textiles, murals, furniture, and more), as well as her food creations, reflect the strong influence of Mother Nature, her cultural upbringing, and social events.      


Pastry Chef graduated from the French Pastry School. She studied modeling (Barbizon Modeling School), acting (Lobo Estepario Theatre Co.), broadcasting (WRTE 90.5 FM Radio Arte),  fashion design (Intl. Academy of Design & Technology), and travel hospitality (American Airlines Travel Academy). She is one of the co-founders of the Repertorio Latino Theater Company.
