Yo soy Tina Hernandez aka La Libertina. Born in the border town of Brownsville, Texas but was raised in Houston as a first generation Xicana/Tejana. I received my B.F.A degree in Photography/Digital Media in 2003 from the University of Houston. I have always worked in self-portraiture and am branching out in photographing other women as well. My work centers on being female and on my Latinidad including the issues, questions, aesthetics, and greatness that comes with it.
I LOVE the T diet: Tacos, Tamales, Tlacoyos, Tlayudas, y Tostadas! Jeje. You do too, no te hagas!
I’ve been in a flower phase for some time now. I try to add it into my work.
I truly believe all kinds of art is important for our well being. It is a form of mental exercise. Make work that is important to you and then hopefully you’ll share it with the world.
Houston has so much talent and wants to burst at the seams with it.
