Miriam Munguia

In her home country of Honduras, Miriam Munguia (b. 1955) worked as a laundress, and was instantly attracted to tapestries, quilting, and weaving upon joining the Creativity Explored studio in 2013.

Munguia is a dedicated worker, meditatively sewing together baskets, assembling complex figurative tapestries, or embroidering quilts with lyrical, meandering lines.

Being deaf and mute, Munguia’s art practice serves as an effective tool to connect with her community. Graphic forms, which often represent people, houses, animals, and tropical plants, take inspiration from her native home in Honduras, and the people she surrounds herself with here in San Francisco. Munguia's visual language continues to grow as she experiments with new materials and techniques, and collaborates with fellow CE artists.

Mungia's work was included in several exhibitions at Creativity Explored.
