About

Debora Kuetzpal Vasquez is a multi-media Chicana artist, born and raised in San Anto, Texas. As a child, the Chican@ Movement shaped her life, work, and the creation of Citlali: La Chicana Super Hero. Currently, Vasquez focuses on Citlalita, a child version of Citlali, and how she obtained her superpowers through las curanderas – women who heal with nature, thus linking her own work with curanderas. Vazquez’s medium is collage, illustration, clay, installation and film shorts. In 2014 she assumed a tenure track position as assistant professor and director of the Art Program at Our Lady of the Lake University.
