Liliana Wilson is a visual artist best known for her intricate drawings with surrealistic renderings. She was born in Valparaíso, Chile where she began drawing at the age of eight. Liliana’s early paintings sought to process the trauma she had witnessed as a young woman in Chile. In her native country, Liliana experienced the dramatic political changes that followed the 1970 election of Salvador Allende. She immigrated to the United States in 1977 and pursued studies in art at Texas State University. Her medium is color pencil on paper or illustration board or acrylic on canvas, panel or illustration board. Sometimes it is a mixture of both.

Liliana’s history of artistic expressions is the subject of a book edited by Norma E. Cantu titled Ofrenda: Liliana Wilson’s Art of Dissidence and Dreams (Texas A & M Press, 2015). The book features a collection of essays written by acclaimed feminist scholars including Gloria E. Anzaldua, Antonia Castañeda, Alicia Gaspar de Alba, Lourdes Perez and other writers. Liliana’s art has been exhibited in the United States, Mexico, Argentina and Italy.
