Since immigrating to Canada in 1998, Maca has increasingly dedicated herself to Visual Arts. She has exhibited and sold her work in Chile, Ireland and Canada. Suazo graduated from Fine Arts at the University of Waterloo (2010) and completed her Master of Arts in Latin American Studies at the University of Guelph (2013). Her current work reflects the relationship between painting and literature. She is particularly interested in exploring magic realism, which is remarkably important for Latin-American writers, where the impossible is made believable in our everyday world by looking at moments of magic. She lives and work in Kitchener, ON.

Painting Literature from imagination


On these series of paintings, I have explored poetry as inspiration for creating imaginary landscapes, characters and scenarios. My intention was to let the voice of the poems speak through colour. I focus this body of work on two poets: Pablo Neruda the Nobel Prize of Literature from my homeland Chile and Sohrab Sepehri from Iran.
