"An achievement does not come alone. It comes along with those who have shared passion and dreams along the way.
From the earliest years, my parents: Irma and Benjamin. The advice of my sisters Paulina and Ileana, my cousin Ramiro, the support and friendship of Alex, Hugo, Samantha, Cocoy, Grecia, Rocío, Alexis. My first teachers in engraving and painting, Corina Ramírez, Cornelio García, Lula Sosa and Vicente Figueroa (D.E.P).
Arturo Joel, Gustavo Posada and David Herrerías, from whom I had an invaluable influence at the University. My Dear tutor and mentor José Luis Cuevas (DEP) and Sergio Garval for their friendship, support and advice, to the unforgettable Paco Barreda, the renowned Mexican gallery owners Alejandro Gallo (Alejandro Gallo Gallery) and Luis García Jasso (Vértice Gallery) Mónica Saucedo (Mónica Saucedo Gallery), Oscar Roman (Oscar Roman Gallery) Linda Gómez (UNO Gallery) and recently Irma Valerio (Irma Valerio Gallery) together with the Jean-Claude Bergeron Gallery in Ottawa, Canada. To my very beloved husband and life partner, with his unwavering conviction, love, happiness and support to continue on this rocky road.
I want more than to thank and recognize the value and work of other colleagues and creatives who will forge the next generation of artists in Nayarit." - Irma Gutierrez
