ELENA GUTIERREZ BIOGRAPHY
Born in Guadalajara, Mexico, Elena Gutierrez lets nothing stand between herself and her passions.
Having studied art in Guadalajara and currently working in Spokane, Washington, Gutierrez is deeply
proud of her Mexican roots and culture. Gutierrez’s acrylic paintings are indeed a product of the soul. She describes her process as letting
her spirit go, working intuitively, experimenting with color, and above all else, she says, “Listening to what
the painting wants me to say.”
For Gutierrez, abstract expressionism was a natural way to communicate a spiritual experience to her audience.
Her inspiration is found in her feelings, nature, literature, music, artwork, children, travel, and the everyday interactions of those around her.
Her paintings depict the jumble of life at close quarters, but are adorned
with sweeping, heroic flourishes that function as a kind of narrative arc for a story that is both deeply
known and yet to be told. “For me, it is a thrill to paint,” Gutierrez says, “to develop my creativity, my
imagination and intuition —living, flying, dreaming, and revealing my spirit.”
