Cecilia Ines Tavarez
Oakland, California, USA


She is a multidisciplinary artist using various art processes to create her vibrant compositions. She enjoys mixing her love of collaging, photography, illustration, and painting but focuses on analog techniques, using natural materials and repurposed found items among other various elements to create these surreal artworks and handmade sacred objects. She believes in the healing power of the expressive arts, written work, and nature. Her source of inspiration comes from her love of the natural world, street art and photography, surrealism, and spirituality. Through her work, she explores the relationship between the inner and outer landscapes, welcoming us to connect with the world differently and inviting us to turn our gaze inward. She explores the feminine identity, the relationship between the visible and invisible elements that construct our realities.


Cecilia Ines Tavarez (aka SEER) is a Dominican-American emerging artist born and raised in the barrio of Washington Heights, New York City.

Currently, she is working towards earning her MA in Expressive Arts Therapy at the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco. She is a late-blooming artist who began her formal art training at the High School of Art & Design, has taken coursework at the Fashion Institute of Technology, and studied abroad at Altos de Chavon/Parsons in the Dominican Republic.
