Samantha Maria Xochitl Espinoza is a Chicanx artist coming from a Mexican and Salvadoran family. She grew up in L.A. and in Denver, CO, and loves being a Libra. She references living in between worlds, identities, and homes as a marker of her queer, Chicanx experience. Her work reveals her historical and personal traumas as openings for wider conversations on racialized, gendered, sexual, and capitalist oppression. Her work is meant as a gift to fellow brown womxn in the hopes that they will see parts of themselves reflected or whispered within her work. She is a youth educator, organizer, daughter, sister and falls in love frequently.
