G. Amaranta Peña Carrasco is captivated by the symbolism of stories, myths and rituals. She brings them to life in her paintings and through the sounds of her hand-crafted ceramic instruments. 

Born in 1986, she completed her bachelor´s degree in Applied Anthropology in 2015 at the Salesiana University in Quito. Her interest in holistic well-being and in liberal arts education led her to explore the fine arts and crafts of different cultures and in 2020 she completed her Master in Arts at the Prince’s Foundation School of Traditional Arts.

Her practice is inspired by the materials and shapes found in the natural world and wildlife of her native Ecuador. Today she lives there with her family, developing an art community on the slopes of the Ilaló volcano.
