Artist's Biography

Maru was born and raised in Mexico surrounded by a rich silversmithing tradition. Her interest as a artist has been mainly focused on the ideas of wear ability and tactile experience. Non-traditional materials have also led her to an exploration of various techniques which she incorporates into unique one-of-a-kind pieces. She received her BFA from the University of Texas at El Paso and her MFA from the University of Oregon. Her work has been exhibited in her home country, and in various national galleries as well as in the publications, Metalsmith magazine and Lark Books, 500 Wedding Rings
