Adriana Elena Spencer was born and raised in the border metroplex of Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, Mexico and El Paso, Texas, USA. Her work is fixated on painting, while incorporating elements of immediacy and directness. The process of her artworks is impacted by her available surroundings: backyard bushes, tree branches, and earth. Inherently so, her work also embodies the push to juggle family life and domestic harmony while working to upheave societal biases and pressures placed upon her as a woman, mother, wife and artist. She currently resides with her family in central Ohio.
