Heredia is an incredible, very fine and courageous person. But above all that,
extremely talented. Rocío is graced with a unique, natural talent, and
her love for the metal, radiates from each and every piece of her work.
Her determination and will to learn are unsurpassed. Few people possess the passion
and excitement with which she approaches the metal. Rocío is truly a rare
find and an artist with a great future".
Yotkov, Member Society of American Silversmiths.
Heredia, another chasing guru, truly important for North America".
Charles Lewton-Brain, Master Goldsmith. Former President, Canadian Crafts Federation/Federation
des Metier d'Arts.
"This is ART!"
~ Efrén Ordóñez, Master Painter.
"Words can never say enough
to emphasis the quality Rocío puts into her metals and forms and interactions
with soul and media."
~ bpFINK, Master Sculptor.
"It's all too desparately beautiful. Heroic. I literally spent most
of my teenage life in the Mediaeval Treasury at the Metropolitan Museum and in
The Cloisters, and hangin' around Gothic churches on Fifth Avenue, and drowning
in books of illuminations, icons, and especially metalwork. It was a feeling.
~ Robin the Hammer Ludwig,
"Art creates sort of an addiction. Art is not merely a project. It's my Life!" ~ Rocío Heredia
Heredia / Photo: Mariana Figueroa
is a self-taught artist of the contemporary Mexican generation. Her work reflects
the evolving artistic and cultural traditions of Mexico, from the ancient Aztec
and Teotihuacan societies to the complexities of the Spanish conquest, up to recent
times. Ms. Heredia began her career in metal art by creating ornamental panels
with religious subjects drawn from Catholicism and Judaism. Her mentor, Master
Painter/Sculptor Efrén Ordóñez, provided support and inspiration, and collaborated
with Ms. Heredia to create panels featuring painted human figures. Ms. Heredia's
early work was exhibited in a one-woman show, "Divine Inspiration,"
at the Loyola Cultural Center of Monterrey in May, 2001. Since then, Ms. Heredia
has been the recipient of numerous recognitions and awards for skillful and passionately
realized themes. She has studied with Valentin Yotkov in New York, and was the
first recipient of the Valentin Yotkov Studio Scholarship. Ms. Heredia's works
are in private collections in Mexico, the USA, Canada, Switzerland, Italy,
Israel, Spain, Germany, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Colombia, Cuba and Thailand. Currently, Ms. Heredia divides her time among metal art,
alternative photography, printmaking, professional
website creation, and graphic design. Ms. Heredia is a member of the
Cultural Information System ~ National Council for the Culture and the Arts, the Council for Arts and
of Nuevo León, the Society of American Silversmiths, & the Society of North
Rocio holds a degree in Psychology from the Regiomontana University
of Monterrey, Nuevo León. Ms. Heredia uses the traditional metalsmithing techniques
of chasing and repoussé in high relief to create fully detailed icon covers, Judaica,
and figurative art designs on fine silver, copper, gold and tin. Currently she
experiments with 24k gold fusion, textures. patinas and techniques.
Rocio Heredia enjoys
exploring what can be done with other
techniques and media. Photography, printmaking, graphite drawing, painting, and
she absolutely loves metalsmithing. To this day it's still her strongest suit. Crucial to Ms. Heredia's
work is the unusual way in which she has turned a physical handicap into a creative
advantage. Suffering from visual impairment, she uses the sense of touch as a
basic tool, the effectiveness of which is evidenced in her finely detailed,
