Artist's Statement

Through visual satisfaction using objects such as; old dolls, clothing, photograph and fabrics, I try to work the miracle of transmitting the emotions that accompany the different stages of life.

Bio/Resume

Social and political imagery, religious iconography, found objects and mixed media all combine in the fascinating, sometimes haunting, work of Colombian-born artist Cecilia Moreno-Yaghoubi. At a young age, Cecilia moved with her family to the United States. She earned her Bachelor’s in Business Administration and began a career in property management. A spiritual journey thereafter ensued and ultimately, the pull toward creative expression led her to pursue her art full-time. Through a combination of influences, Cecilia’s concepts have traveled from the lush and beautiful yet safe and mainstream landscapes of her homeland to the more challenging, riskier, mixed media work. Featuring political, cultural and social imagery, many of her current pieces are assembled using materials found in flea markets and thrift shops such as dolls, wood and fabric.
