This biography from the Archives of AskART:
"Ester Hernández, a California artist of Mexican and Yaqui descent, was born and raised in Dinuba, a small town on the western slope of the Sierra Nevadas.  The child of farm workers, Hernández grew up in an atmosphere of natural beauty, mixed cultural traditions and social activism.  The Hernández family was actively involved in the struggle for the rights of farm workers since the 1930s.  Moving to the Bay Area in the early 1970s to study Chicano Studies at Laney College and then visual arts at UC Berkeley, Hernández graduated with honors and a degree in practice of art.  During this period, she met and became involved with Las Mujeres Muralistas, San Francisco's first all Latina mural collective.

Though the renowned artist works as a muralist and painter, she primarily considers herself a printmaker.  Hernández has taught art in elementary school, college and senior citizen centers, and currently works with disabled adults at San Francisco's Creativity Explored.  She is the recipient of several California Arts Council grants, and her work has been featured in numerous exhibits in the United States, Mexico and England.  Hernández was included in the exhibition Chicano Art: Resistance and Affirmation 1965-1985.  Hernández currently resides in San Francisco, California."
