Maria Evangelina Rodriguez
Maria Evangelina was born in Morelia Michoacan, Mexico.

She received her Bachelors degree in Dentistry in Mexico, but painting and drawing had always been her real vocation. She got the Art and Creative Process degree at the University of California, Campus San Diego, (2003-2005).
Love for horses made them the main theme of her work, she is identified by it and her ink work, is the result of her own search. Her lines and stains of ink make you discover a horse or horses, most of the time in movement allowing the viewer to feel its power and grace. 
Her horses don't have bridles or halters, nor saddles, giving them back at least in an illusion, their freedom which we have taken away from them.
