Artist Maria Raquel Cochez was born in Panama in 1978. In 2002 she received a BFA in Fibers from the Savannah College of Art and Design, Savannah, GA. She works mainly on conceptual photography, performance art, video, art objects, and painting. Her work is an elaborate story of the battle with self acceptance, executed through auto-referential, autobiographical and biographical accounts parallel to this universal struggle.
