Coco Rico describes her artistic process and inspiration as follows: My prints contain “some sort of vegetation”, which relates back to my upbringing. My mother was born and raised in Lagos de Moreno, Jalisco, Mexico. My father was born and raised in Capulin, Michoacan, Mexico. Both my parents have worked in agriculture for as long as I can remember. My upbringing and Mexican cultural background have lead me to experience a special, spiritual, unbreakable bond with my parents. They have shared their stories with me from when they first came to California in the 70’s and listening to their struggles had opened my eyes to the many opportunities I have here in the United States. In my lithographs and drawings, I “transform” my memories into independent visual metaphors using birds, branches, and small (almost invisible) text. These repeated images are intended to give insight into my relationships, especially with my mom, my unstable childhood, and emotional loving of animals.
