Gu​atemalan born, Gabriela Monterroso began painting in her late twenties after moving to Mexico City inspired by nostalgic feelings for her home country's traditions.  Today she melds these mores and images with those of her present life into a style complemented and inspired by both.

Monterroso's professional background as an industrial psycholo​gist has influenced her creation of images with unique colors swathed in her personal stamp of soothing tones and hues.  Recognizing that everything the eye sees impacts the mind, Monterroso seeks to elevate emotions as well as present pleasing images for art lovers and viewers of her work. 

Monterroso is currently based out of Silver Street Studio in Houston, Texas.
