I am an interdisciplinary visual artist and bruja in Oakland, California. My current work documents subversive medical narratives and trauma as
meme. As an art witch, my focus concerns visual spellwork, femmecentric protection medicine
and the weaponization of orthopedics.

I use handcraft, mark making, art rituals and graphic narratives to heal and hold my lived experience as a queer disabled woman of color.   

My  influences include liberation and self determination movements,  ancestral knowledge and the moon.   

I have worked as an arts educator for over 15 years and am currently pursuing higher education autonomously  with the Bay Area’s DIY MFA

I am available for commissions, collaborations, and workshops.  Contact me with any inquiries at inesixierda@gmail.com or instagram @ines_ixierda
