Congratulations UNM Printmaking alum, Juana Estrada Hernández, who is now Rhode Island School of Design’s Assistant Professor of Printmaking

Juana Estrada Hernández was born in Luis Moya, Zacatecas, Mexico and immigrated to the United States when she was seven years old. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Printmaking at Fort Hays State University in Hays, Kansas and her Master of Fine Arts in Printmaking at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Estrada Hernandez is a recipient of the Southern Graphic Council International Graduate Fellowship Award, SITE Scholars Award, Center of Fine Arts Dean Travel Award, UNM Student Conference Award Program, and Ralph W. Douglas Endowed Memorial Scholarship.

As an artist, Estrada Hernandez utilizes her experiences growing up in the United States as a young immigrant to create work that addresses social and political problems surrounding latinx migrant communities. Her creative practice stems from her love of drawing, Mexican folklore, pop-culture, Mexican culture, and her family’s migration stories.
