Myisha is a painter, animator, and muralist born in Mexico City raised in the San Fernando Valley. At the age of 16 she led and completed her first mural project in Van Nuys, CA and as a result became very active in that community. Since then, she has lead her own projects as well as collaborated with with various muralists in Los Angeles. In 2016 she graduated from California State University, Northridge with a B.A. in fine arts and animation.

In 2015 Myisha joined SPARC as part of the City Wide Mural Program where she restored over 15 historic murals throughout LA. She has also taught and mentored over 70 kids at the Judith Baca Arts Academy in paining and animation. Myisha is currently mentoring youth and leading art projects with the Immigrant Youth Coalition. Her work as an artist, designer, and teacher is partly focused on the idea of humanizing the experiences of immigrants in the U.S. However, her work is not created exclusively for a particular  group of audiences. As someone who had to learn a foreign language and culture at the age of 8 Myisha´s paintings are intended to create a pictorial “language” that can challenge ideas and connect people.
