Alma Dominguez was born in Chihuahua, Mexico. She emigrated 15 years ago to the Chicago area. She studied painting in Mexico, but it wasn’t until after moving to Chicago that she began to develop her technique. She is a psychologist with a Masters in Social Science, which has had a great influence on her work, focusing on political, social and environmental issues, highlighting the importance of women, minorities and the migrant community in our society. She is the founder of an International Women Collective “Pintoras Mexicanas” and co-founded OPEN Center for the Arts.
