About the Artist
Lisette Chavez was born and raised in the Rio Grande Valley, located on the southernmost tip of Texas near the Mexican border. She is a multi-disciplinary artist with interests in lithography, drawing, and installation-based work. Mirroring everyday life as she sees it, her work teeters on the edge of beauty and suffering. Although hesitant to expose her own family history and traumas, she understands how sharing personal experiences, both positive and negative, produces the discourse to help us better understand the human condition.
Chavez earned her Master of Arts degree at Texas A&M University—Corpus Christi and Master of Fine Arts degree at the University of Arizona. Her work is held in museums, universities, and private collections. She has exhibited nationally and internationally in Estonia, France, Egypt, Australia, and Mexico.
She currently lives and works in Tucson, Arizona.
