Lorraine Figueroa Arocho is an artist born in Puerto Rico in 1983. From the age of ten she began to take her first steps as a musician of native Puerto Rican music, with the guiro being her main instrument and in which she specialized. She studied Music Education at the Interamerican University in San Germán, PR. Then she continued her career as a percussionist, performing in all the towns on the island and in some US states. She shared several theater and stage stages with many Puerto Rican artists from the patio on large stages such as the Choliseo José Miguel Agrelot, International Art and Music Festivals and television projects, among others. In 2005, she was a precursor and pioneer of the Güiro Classes project, which she offered for eight years at the Dr. Francisco Lopez Cruz Foundation, under the direction of teacher Francisco “Paquito” Marrero. This project was designed for face-to-face mode and covers all native Puerto Rican musical genres and how to merge them with some foreign musical genres. In the midst of a constant and lifelong battle with Crohn’s disease, Lorraine felt that her thirst for learning had not been quenched. It is there where he decides to venture into a world where he never thought would fill him so much. She completed a Bachelor’s degree in health sciences with a concentration in Respiratory Therapy, which she practiced for five years at the Puerto Rico Medical Center. After going through great experiences as a respiratory therapist, which completely changed her perspective on life, she loses another battle against Crohn’s and moves to the US for a change in treatment and medical care. This triggered in having to keep her entire body free of stress, which did not allow her to return to her field. The mixture of feelings and frustrations were so great that she decided to explode on the canvas. Painting has been the one who has been able to undress her soul and dress it again with a much brighter essence. Since then, she has dedicated every day that her body allows her to spill all her artistic side on the canvas using different techniques and textures, which leads her to classify herself as Mixed Art. She uses brush techniques in his works, but in turn, you can find textures such as: sand, ground snail, rope, seeds, plaster, crayons, among others.
