Biography

Myrna Leticia Enamorado aka Ponytess is a Latin American artist and author from Kenner, Louisiana.  She began exhibiting artwork in New Orleans in 2003 after graduating from Tulane University, and internationally in 2011.  Her first poem was published in 1998.  Since then, she has released 3 illustrated fairytales and made over 20 handmade artist books.  Besides New Orleans, she lived briefly in Paris, where she studied art history at La Sorbonne and New York, while she studied art therapy at School of Visual Arts.  Most of her work experience was in radio as a dj, board operator, and producer, and in the medical field as an interpreter for Spanish  speakers. 

Artist Statement

Inspired by the immensity of a starry sky, the natural cycles of the moon, or the pulsing, infinite vibrations of waterfalls, natural healings occur within the various mediums I apply throughout my work.  I create work to feel connection, to escape, to create a utopian reality.  The result is akin to the alchemical qualities of the unicorn's horn or the phantasmagoric influence of fairytales.
