Esmeralda Villalobos, Individual Authors and Artists

CIMG5664

Esmeralda Villalobos is an artist from Guadalajara, Mexico, currently living in Southern California. Her primary media are oils and acrylics, but she also enjoys working in watercolors, ink, and other mixed media. As far as her painting style is concerned, she feels that experimenting with different forms—surrealism, abstract expressionism, realism—is one of the greatest freedoms an artist has. She believes that working in different styles and media keeps her interested, engaged, and helps to expand her creativity. She is the cover artist of five books for Sadie Girl Press; Cadence Collective Anthology: Year One and Year Two, All the Tiny Anchors, Unanchored, and Born to Electrify, as well as contributing artist to CadenceCollective.net, Like a Girl: Perspectives on Feminine Identity and Then & Now:Conversations with Old Friends. Her artbook, Artwork by Esmeralda Villalobos, is available for purchase at the SGP bookstore. Follow her on Facebook.com/artworkbyesmeraldavg.
