Born and raised in Gary, Indiana, the Los Angeles based visual artist, Jennia Fredrique Aponte, has been honing her skills for paper mosaics since she was a little girl.  Recognizing a love for paper and collage, Jennia’s mother gifted the young artist with her first exacto knife when Jennia was just 8 years old. Originally a actor, dancer and filmmaker, Jennia blends her roots of movement with her  love for paper, bringing about a perfect marriage of her two passions.

The artisit’s medium of collage to tell stories that transcend space, time and the universe, challenge each viewer to think deeply. From Egyptian papyrus to pure gold leaf, Jennia collects paper from all over the world loves to take the already existing materials and arrange them into a new art form.

Artist Statement

Every one of my paper mosaics tells a story. Each intricate collage is an amalgamation of personal moments, vivid dreams and a constant search for the truth about myself and the world I live in. Filled with secrets and mystical elements, my canvases reveal where I’ve come from, what l’ve learned, and where I’m going.

“As a visual artist, my goal is not only to provoke deep thought but to allow the viewer to explore the depths of their own world.”
