Biography


Edilia Bautista is a Mexican-American sculptor who discovered her passion to express her emotions through clay molding at a very young age.
 
Born in Veracruz and raised in Jalisco, Mexico; Edilia was an active participant in ballet, folkloric dance, poetry and outdoor activities. She used to spend her summers in the middle of the ocean along with her parents; all of these experiences served to enhance her creativity and allowed her to produce small pieces of art made of Paper Mache and Cardboard.
 
Although she had a deep love for sculpture and drawing, her university years led her to a career in International Finances which along with family transitions brought her to Houston, Texas, where she currently resides. Her business practice while raising her two sons made her take a pause on her art pursuit. Later on she temporarily relocated to Mexico City for a year and being in contact with her cultural roots again made her revive and deeply grasp her passion for art.
 
Edilia Bautista is a self-taught sculptor and artist whose commercial career and multicultural experience has integrated her skills to produce resin sculptures through a mold making process along with her recent Paper Mache projects.
 
Her work has been shown and collected in different countries in the Americas and Faris Foundation - "Art is Hope"
