Born in 1982 in Mexico, Perez has created a vast bestiary of strong, graphic drawings of animals. Ranging from seven-legged cats to flocks of geese in flight, she makes her creatures with the simplest of marks across an array of media.
The influence of printmaking is evident in all of her work—vivid contrasts between dark and light, fine lines and densely black forms, all skillfully balanced. In a similar vein, her three owls pillow is executed with wisps of ink that expertly and simply catch and express the essential elements of the owls: eyes focused and finely feathered.
