Franceska Gamez

Sacramento, USA

Born in Manila and raised in the Bay Area, Franceska Gamez now currently resides in Sacramento where she practices in mixed media sculptures and painting.

Upon receiving her degree in Fine Art at California State University Sacramento, she has continued to dedicate full time to her trade. Her willful practice in the arts have led to dynamic bouts in music, writing, curation, art conservation, and project organization. She has existing murals from coast to coast and throughout Europe. Along with being a full-time artist, she is currently the co-director of 1810 Gallery and member of M5 Arts Collective. She was one of the contributing artists at the Art Hotel 916 as well as ArtStreet. As part of M5 Arts, she provides creative support for project groundwork- from brainstorming framework to hands-on building.

She has been commissioned to create public works by the California Faculty Association, Greenpeace DC, The California Auto Museum, and more recently, Asian American Women Artists Association as well as the The California Rice Commission.
