Mixed Media Exhibit on Display at Thomas Balch Library
Inra said her inspiration comes from real world experiences and personal stories. Since childhood, her sense of color has come naturally and has become a personal expression. The palette of nature’s colors in flora has been her inspiration.
Mixed media art challenges her to go beyond the ordinary. Her paintings possess a deep understanding of structure and space, seamlessly blending those elements into a visual harmony. Ligia’s canvases engage the viewer as an active participant on her colorful journey.
Inra was born in Acapulco, Mexico where she grew up surrounded by music, literature, and art. She lived in New York City for over 30 years, which afforded her an even deeper appreciation of art. She has lived in Loudoun County for the past 20 years.
Inra’s work has been exhibited in local juried shows including Art at The Mill, Artist in Middleburg, the Tryst Gallery, Waterford Art & Craft Fair, and local libraries. It has also been a part of private collections throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico.
