“I live halfway between two wonderful countries: Mexico, where I was born and where I continue to live in Troncones, and Paris, France. I create all my work in Troncones and Paris,” she says. “The Mexican and French magic . . . these two cultures enrich and inspire me.”

Called “Meta” (Spanish for “Goal”), MariCarmen Hernandez is an architect by training from Universidad Anáhuac, UNAM (The University of Mexico) in Mexico City. Her first works were “textile sculptures” made of intertwined ribbons. In 1976, she started working in Paris and permanently settled there in 1985 when she began to paint abstract compositions.

The artist “Meta” has exhibited her creations all over the world.  Radiant as always, MariCarmen Hernandez, “Meta” shares her artwork for you to enjoy.
