About

Hola! I’m Dora Cuenca (pronounced KWEN -kuh).I’m Costarican born and bred, currently living in New Jersey with my husband and 3 kids.

I might endlessly be prepping snacks and kissing “ouchies”s, but I’m always creating in the back of my mind. I keep little sketchbooks hidden throughout my house and car, so I can unload in the moments in between.

I´m inspired by feelings and memories, my big loud Latin family, raindrops on green lush tropical background (other word), my sadness of loss, perfect warm waves, fruit that drips down your face, the painful distance, the adrenaline of giving birth, it’s an endless list…. I weave them all with color and a bit of magic. And sometimes I just … draw!
