Mariana Valles, Latina, Fiery, Devout, LGBT Firebrand, Artistically, Literarily, Spiritually: May she Rest in Peace.

Mariana lived both on the streets of Skid Row, doing the hardest and most dangerous of ancient professions thereupon along with creating her art, and also in the tiny SRO "hotels" or residential buildings of Skid Row. 

She worked in oil paint and acrylic, abstraction and realism, sophisticated handling techniques, and raw primitivistic assaults of pigment upon canvas, splaying her emotion and heart upon the substrates of her work. 

She passed away on the oft rough streets and environs of Skid Row in 2020 and we shall miss her and love her forever.
