My Name is Lorena Sliffe Preciado
I am a universal visual artist kissed by the sun, meaning I am a Mexican-born artist.
I was born in Mexicali, Mexico. The city of the sun." I love summer days, trees in all-year seasons, fog in winter, snow wonder, abundant signs of natural life in spring, and driving under the rain on a country road just because it's poetic—all of this I have now by living in the mountains in Julian, California.
In 1996, I became a muralist and began to create works of art professionally for individuals and commercial venues in San Diego and other parts of southern California, as well as in northern Baja California, Mexico, Tecate, and Mexicali, Mexico.
Acrylic paint is my original medium. Although I no longer paint murals, creating them has given me great pleasure and satisfaction as a muralist.
Now, I enjoy making acrylic paintings on canvas relatively large out of preference.
As an artist, there is no greater pleasure for me than finding substantial growth and improvement in my projects. As I grew and matured, so did my art. Every year, my work becomes more and more exciting and fulfilling on a personal level.

To expand my artistic skills, I also focus my energy on frequency digital abstract art, with color as my main inspiration. The idea of infinite creative possibilities through digital composition fascinates me.
I think art and technology are exciting, advantageous, and powerful to challenge anyone's creativity.
I see my abstract digital drawings as silhouettes of time dancing to the rhythm of digital colors.
Thank you for being here and celebrating with me!
