This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Elsa Munoz is an academic realist painter born in 1983 in Chicago. Her recognition began within three years after graduating from the American Academy of Art, Chicago in 2006 with a BFA in oil painting.  She has had various solo shows throughout Chicago ever since, including exhibitions at Dubhe Carreno Gallery and Zygman Voss Gallery. 

Muñoz states that her greatest achievement to date is having her solo exhibition "Claro y Obscuro" at the National Museum of Mexican Art in 2011 and having the painting Drifting Sun being acquired as a part of the museum’s permanent collection.  Overall the artist says, “My philosophy is pretty simple.  I paint what I know, what I think about, and what I want to live with.  I don’t pay attention to trends, but instead what feels real and beautiful to me.”
