Julie Acosta - Artist
Artist Statement

I have spent much of my adult years reconnecting to my indigenous roots, which I express in my art. My art focuses around indigenous and female empowerment and awareness. For so long, indigeneity has been covered up and nearly wiped out throughout all the Americas. I like to explore femininity in some of my works, as well as various depictions of strong female images. 

My art-making process consists of developing an idea or message that I want people to see. My art seeks to help myself and others explore their indigenous history, as well as past and current indigenous issues. Through various compositions, colors, and materials, I hope to inspire others to see their own reflection within aspects of my art.
