De la Cajiga is a painter and photographer based in Vancouver. She calls herself an explorer and an illusionist as her interests reside in the transformation of reality. Her concern is the creation of artwork that shows the tension between intellect and intuition, enjoyment and surprise. When painting she represents what exists in her mind. When photographing she removes what exist to leave only what her mind searches. She embraces analysis and exploration to keep advancing and producing stimulating and exciting artwork.
De la Cajiga’s introduction to art started at the Louvre Museum in Paris, and it has been followed by courses as needed. She has attended, Langara College, Capilano University, Focal Point, and Emily Carr University in Vancouver; the Art Institute in San Miguel Allende, Mexico, and the Academy of Realist Art in Seattle, USA.
She has exhibited in a variety of galleries in Canada, Mexico, the U.S., and Venezuela. Her artwork is in the West Vancouver Museum, the Business Council of BC, the Richmond Hospital, as well as in private collections in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, France, Mexico, Spain, the U.S., and Venezuela.
