This biography from the Archives of AskART:
"Patssi Valdez began her artistic career in the 1970s as a student in Garfield High School in East Los Angeles when she became the only female among the seminal, four-member Chicano art group ASCO (nausea in Spanish).  

Along with Valdez, ASCO members included the now well-known photographer Harry Gamboa and artists Willie Herron and Gronk.  ASCO expanded
the definition of Chicano art beyond murals and posters by experimenting with a range of art forms, including street performance, photographic montage, pageantry and conceptual art.

In January 2001, “Patssi Valdez: A Precarious Comfort” opened at The Mexican Museum in San Francisco.  In March 2001, Valdez was one of only three Los Angeles artists awarded a $25,000 Durfee Artist Fellowship based on past artistic achievement and future promise."
