from a very young age, anna-maria bribiesca’s artist parents, influenced her passion for the visual arts.
being of mexican-nz ancestry she is drawn to multiple disciplines. “i appreciate all the arts. over the years i have experimented with various forms of art – moving image, jewellery, sculpture, textile, painting and photography. it is lifelong learning for me that never ceases. for me it is intrinsic and I have to make art”.
anna-maria currently teaches art, has a bva and a med honours conversaciones con mi sangre from the university of auckland. this thesis’ discourse examines her perception on art passed on from her rich and diverse heritages.
anna-maria has had numerous solo and group shows over the years as well as experience in curating art exhibitions.
