Tehachapi Treasure Trove featuring Daniela Peregrina
First Friday in Downtown Tehachapi - 5-8 p.m., July 6, 2018
June 23, 2018
July First Friday at Tehachapi Treasure Trove will feature J Daniela Peregrina, mixed media artist. Daniela is currently displaying a variety of mixed media pieces at the Treasure Trove including candles, treasure boxes, journals and unique wall art.
Daniela's recent entry into the mixed media field follows a long history of art appreciation and graphic arts. She studied art history in college, enjoys visiting art museums and has been a lifetime (since age 13 anyway) fan of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. When she recently became an empty nester, she discovered that she needed additional creative outlets. She had always loved art, but considered herself as an artist. When she took a mixed media class at the Treasure Trove with Judith Campanaro, she found her niche. Mixed media gives Daniela, a perfectionist, an outlet that does not require absolute perfection. All of the elements used in her work are hand made. Each of her finished pieces has a hidden message. Come check them out.
Daniela was born in the United States, but was raised and attended college in Mexico. That is when she was introduced to the work of Frida Kahlo. While going to college in Mexico City she would often visit "Blue House," Frida's home. Daniela also lived in Europe for several years where she was able to visit many wonderful art museums. When she became pregnant, she decided it was time to return home and raise her son in Tehachapi. She has worked as a graphic design artist for the past 10 years. She is currently working to establish her own business as a Social Media Marketing Manager.
Joining her will be Ricky Peregrina, Daniela's son, who plays guitar and sings. Tehachapi Treasure Trove is located at 116 E. Tehachapi Blvd., right across the street from the water tower in Railroad Park.
