Hello! My name is Ella, and I am an Ella Mendoza-BARKIPLE_4000
undocumented artist, and writer;
born and raised in Lima, Peru, but
currently living in Salt Lake City, Utah.

I am self-taught and still learning in so many ways.
My  work  centers  on personal
experiences of nostalgia and trauma,
the intentional  healing  happening
in  our communities, via education,
representation,  and   art.  

My essays and illustrations have been
featured in many different settings, such as
Everyday Feminism ,  The Repeal Hyde Art Project,
and The Body is Not An Apology.
