My name is Stephanie Cordova, and I was born and raised in the city of Albuquerque. Deeply rooted in the depths of my creative interior, I have always loved to "create". Since I was a small child I have always been very"crafty", this still carries on today. Acrylic painting on canvas is my typical go to for several years now. On my current creative journey I am working a lot with mixed media pieces with heavy metaphysic themes. Also I have been creating pieces with themes that just simply make me happy. Mixed media has inspired this concept of pulling all sorts of different mediums to create a work with unique qualities and depth.This serves as a significant reflective piece in my life. My personality craves variety, there is a certain need to want to get my hands into everything, so i explore. I've been having fun experimenting with resin pours over canvases, trays, and even upcycled backing to old puzzles. I still will have my classic acrylic on canvases available and keep your eye out for these uniquely created pieces.

What does a feminist economy mean to you?
A Feminist economy means that i have a chance, and given the chance to really make profit off of the things that complety fuel me and give me energy. My art has always been my passion, in the earlier days in my life I have always wanted to be an artist. Imagine that, being a child and knowing what creates that fire inside one self to continue to a lifelong journey? It's powerful, but this power is most transcendent when recognized, when respected, when it's uplifted. Here in Albuquerque there has been a divine fem uprising and it's been absolutely amazing to see the fierce support there is for the feminine creatives in this town. As a woman you can easily get overlooked and not taken seriously, and especially if you are shy and maybe a bit introverted.
How does your work uplift the community?
Honestly, I think the fact that I am out here along with all the other feminine creatives putting in energy, time, and intention serves in itself to the uplift of our community. I mean I was a girl that grew up being afraid to be seen. Now, here I am by the grace of the generous hands that have given me the time and opportunity to flourish. It's important to let that serve as a serious possibility to girls who have wild dreams of being an artist or a creative, and that we together have to maintain it.
