Daniela Cavazos Madrigal was born in Laredo, Texas. She received her Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Texas at San Antonio in 2017 and her Bachelor of Arts from Texas A&M International University in 2013. Currently, Cavazos Madrigal is an exhibiting artist living in San Antonio, Texas.

Born and raised in a border town, Cavazos Madrigal’s work reflects her interest in socio-cultural issues along the U.S./ Mexico border. Her text based practice employs processes such as embroidery, sewing, and weaving with found materials. Cavazos Madrigal’s ongoing research explores the themes of immigration and of her cultural identity as it relates to her experiences as a brown female artist. Her research has led her to conduct interviews with immigrants in hopes of sharing their unique narratives and opening for dialogue. As a bilingual, she is interested in how language fails and explores the facets of translation. Cavazos Madrigal hopes to continue reinterpreting the relationship between discarded materials and language.Contact
