Ro Garrido is an artist from Queens, New York, born in Lima, Peru. Ro's work grapples with themes of memory, intimacy and loss, as related to migration, history, and trauma, in an attempt to build intimate, emotional linkages as a point of entry into personal and political forms of engagement.
Helen is totally awesome and cool. From birth to the dawn of Adulthood the vast prairies, of Southern Alberta Canada, were her home. From this sparcely populated and artistically lacking area, she has made her way to New York City. On her way she stopped in the notorious city, Provo Utah for 5 years. Here, she studied and worked, at Brigham Young University, to receive her Bachelors degree in Commercial Photography.

Helen has been known to sing like an angel, while she plays songs she has written on her guitar, which was found in a dumpster. She also occasionally designs and makes functional things like dressers, pencil holders and wall coverings out of cardboard.
