About the Artist
Haylie Jimenez was born in Orlando, FL but spent most of her adolescence in rural north Georgia along with her twin. She graduated from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago with a BFA in May 2020. Her work depicts/centers around black and brown queer femmes, either in normal everyday settings based from her own lived experiences, sometimes including mythical or magical elements to emphasize certain marginalized realities. Her practice consists of drawings, printmaking, and animation. She is interested in drawing as a form of documentation and in the various ways drawing styles are informed and how lived experiences inform style as well as subject matter.
