Iris Vanessa Gonzalez – Houston, Texas

Mexican- American and Native Houstonian, Artist and painter, and a proud mother of 3, Iris has been a part of Via Colori since its commencement in 2006. Over the years she has always been a freelance artist as well as an architectural designer. Art surrounds her life and family, and she is always excited to see and engage others experiencing art around them. Art, especially this kind of public art, is a living, breathing thing that Iris loves being a part of. Her artwork ranges from the personal surrealist type, to still-life's and portraits. She loves creating something that will touch someone even if it's only for 1 day, or 2, as is this event. You can follow her work at
