Maritza Jáuregui Neely


Maritza started painting shortly before her third birthday. She learned how to paint from watching her Father work on numerous projects. During her childhood, she  earned many awards working with modeling clay, including a scholarship to go to college.
At age 17, Maritza was an art instructor for several institutions and for public schools; amongst those, Magisterio Nacional, La Universidad Veracruzana and El Instituto Veracruzano de Cultura y Las Artes. Her first works included sculptures, castings in metals, wood and linoleum carvings.

 Important exhibits at The Museum of Antropology in Xalapa, Universidad Veracruzana, IVEC and at many National and International competitions.

Throughout the years Maritza has created maquettes with themes related to childhood, community and traditions; Since relocating to El Paso TX, in 1995, she became more interested in  two-dimensional techniques, from which acrylic is one of her favorite mediums.

Maritza's work is collected internationally. Her artwork is found in Great Britain, Italy, Germany, Hungary, Japan, and all across The US and Latin America.

Maritza is a Traditional Artist, Graphic Artist and Web Developer. She produces artwork for selected exhibits, works on commissions and collaborates with private companies to develop brands, logos and illustrations.


"I believe that art is essential to life. There is an art for everything, everybody can do it and nobody can judge it, because at the end, nobody really understands it better than the artist, the creator.
  Art is what frees the spirit and allows to express the most intimate emotions, so weather I feel sad or happy, it reflects on my artwork.

  Everything in the creative process is valid, and there is no right or wrong, a painting is a transparent door to the artists vision, and breaking a few rules once in a while makes creating art a fun and interesting experience" - Maritza
