Minnie Valero and Mariko Irie 2012

Minnie Valero and I met at the paint out in the Balboa Park for three years ago. Coming from completely different cultures.

Minnie Valero comes from Cordoba, Argentina, and now lives and works in the San Diego area and the South of France. I came from Tokyo, Japan, lived in Mendocino for 27 years, lived in San Diego for 2 years and now living in Santa Rosa.


We don’t spend time together much. But some how, since we met, we feel that we’ve known each other long time and feel the vibrations of their artistic passion.


We are having a show “Minie Valero and Mariko Irie 2012” at Spanish Village Art Center Gallery 21.

Our works are very different each other, but they have beautiful harmony.


Both award winning artists, who have been in numerous group and solo shows, Minnie and my art reflects our life journey.
