Best Visual Artist
Upon seeing her work it’s hard to believe that Herrera has only been painting for seven years. Her talent is undeniable but her art also has a greater purpose in mind. For example one of Herrera’s more recent projects has been creating semi-realistic figurative oil paintings that portray women who have endured some type of trauma. “A really big point in my work is not only just for a pretty picture it’s something to help the community and certain topics on social justice” she says.
