This beautifully illustrated book based on Puente’s watercolor series “The Games We Used To Play” reintroduces our youth to a history of how their ancestors would pass the time when they were children themselves. Retold by the artist herself, the art works are described in a simple and innocent way that can easily be shared with the whole family.
Puente is a South Texas artist with origins in Mexico City. Her early recollections of first works are of doodles made with her fingers on the dirt of a patio at her grandmother’s home. She obtained her love for the visual arts from watching paintings that belonged to her uncle, an artisan who worked with fiberglass and resin.
Puente has had the opportunity of studying with some of the great masters of Mexico, Rufino Tamayo and Jose Luis Cuevas. Today, she works in her studio in Brownsville, Texas, expressing her dreams and passages of her life through her work.
