Reyna Ramirez was born in Jalisco, Mexico in 1999. Searching for better opportunities,
Reyna Ramirez’s parents brought her and her four older siblings to the United States the
following year. In the summer of 2004, Ramirez’s family moved to Dallas, Texas and have
called it home ever since.
Reyna became interested in art as a young child when she would watch her older brother
draw on car windows and explore different mediums. Ramirez would not become invested into
her artistic practice until high school when her art teacher at the time, Mrs. Julia Smith,
encouraged her to push forward. Mrs. Smith was the main person to inspire Ramirez to explore
her potential in the arts, often gifting Ramirez art supplies and motivating her to enter art
competitions.
Today Ramirez is an undergraduate student at the University of Texas at Arlington
pursing a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree with a concentration in painting and a minor in art
history. With the help from her professors and peers, Ramirez has painted murals at the
university and will soon be displaying Cosiendo Heridas Heredadas (Stiching up Inherited
Wounds) in a collaborative show in Germany. Locally, Ramirez curates art shows that emphasize
the importance of supporting the artists within her community and is currently working under
artist Carlos DonJuan who is a product of the same area Ramirez has grown up in. With her main
goal being to give back to the communities that are congruent with those who have helped mold
and impact her childhood, Ramirez hopes to continue to build relationships and inspire the artists
of tomorrow.
