Julieta Valdez began her art training at an early age studying drawing and pastel techniques. She also studied interior design at the Women’s University of Guadalajara. Valdez continued her education at the Academia del Giglio in Florence, Italy, studying pictorial arts. An eclectic and lifelong learner, Valdez spent time with various artists in the cities of Monterrey, Tijuana, and San Miguel de Allende.
Valdez is skilled in many different techniques including watercolor, engraving, and painting. These techniques enable her to inject passion, color, and movement into her works. The feminine figure is a constant, appearing in suggestive lines that vibrate with intense female energy.
Valdez’s accolades and achievements are as vast as they are impressive. Along with her contemporary Mary Fox, she co-founded the Dimensions Gallery in Ensenada, Baja California in 1989.
Garnering global appeal, she has exhibited at the Bellemur Art Project (BAP) in Paris France, Galería Yuri López Kullins in both Mexico and Madrid Spain, the London Biennale in Chelsea Old Town Hall, and the United States including art fairs in San Diego such as the Art Walk and the Latin American Art Festival. In addition to exhibitions in Mexico, Valdez has collaborated with several winemakers in the famous Valle de Guadalupe wine region, and her work permanently resides in the Wine Museum.
