Artist Statement

Flora Ramirez-Bustamante is a Spanish-born artist based in Seattle, Washington.  Ramirez-Bustamante makes paintings and small sculptures that integrate personal and cultural symbols in figurative or abstract compositions. Found or rejected objects and random images that are immediate work as tipping points for unexpected creations made with oils, cement, wood, plaster or any other material at hand. Trained as a linguist and having never taken any formal art classes, Ramirez-Bustamante develops a personal approach to working with diverse materials and exploring different styles with a primary commitment to spontaneity versus perfection. She received her BA in Spanish Linguistics from the Universidad Autónoma of Madrid, Spain, and her PhD on General Linguistics and Spanish Grammar from the same university years later. Ramirez-Bustamante has participated in solo and group exhibitions in Seattle, Oregon and Hawaii.
