Grijalva is an emerging artist raised in San Diego, California. She employs portraiture, reportage and surrealism to create work that allows varied interpretations of the individuals and themes present.  
Her intention is to allow those she works with to document their own personal truth while also formulating a character that blurs the division of reality and fantasy. Grijalva often explores recurring themes such as gender and sexuality, death, love and is drawn to subcultures and topics often misrepresented by society at large.

“La Tierra Mia: A Chicano Park Story catalogs a collection of memories through photos and notes from contributors who have shared a connection to the park over the past 50 years. Hopefully, through these shared artifacts, we can start to formulate a story of not only the past, but the maintenance of history for the future.”
