Throughout her stay in Nicaragua where her family is from, MJ Lindo began to paint females as a result of her surroundings and influences. Currently a bay area artist MJ has lived around the world exposing her to many different cultures outside of her own. As a little girl living in Toronto, Canada, MJ would ride the subway everyday catching glimpses of huge graffiti pieces covering tremendous street walls inspiring her to become an artist. While MJ has painted on many different mediums, she prefers and craves the firmness and stability she gets from painting on wood canvases. She continues to create and aspire as she paints her dreams, fantasies, and nightmares.
