about the artist
Leticia began using red clay when she was six years old, helping her mother, Maestra Josefina Aguilar, with her artwork. Along with her brother Demetrio, who is also part of Rombo, they helped her mother run her business, which stands to this day. She fell in love with the technique early in her life, wishing to represent her culture, especially the way people dressed. She wanted to create scenes that she saw every day and celebrate Oaxacan culture. Her wish is for her art to be recognized around the world and for her knowledge to be passed on to future generations.
