Meet Peque

“Peque”, short for Pequeña (meaning small one), started dabbling in watercolors when she was still in diapers and hadn’t a single clue that paint was not edible.

Thanks to her late grandfather Alvaro, she learned to play with watercolors before she could form complete sentences.

Peque credits her love affair with art to him and draws inspiration from his unique style.

Based in Chicago, she can be found sketching, finding new food spots or heading to O’Hare to catch the next flight out.
