Lucrecia Ramona de Jesús

Lucrecia is young emerging artist, who specializes in illustration and digital media. She comes from a passionate and strong family that migrated from Colombia to Australia, seeking political asylum. In 2014 she left her new home in Australia to embark on her own adventure, moving to Costa Rica to finish her education and attend United World Colleges (UWC), where she received her International Baccalaureate and bilingual diploma. Lucrecia returned to Australia to study at the Victorian College of the Arts (VCA), obtaining her Bachelor of Fine Art (BFA), specializing in painting and visual art.

She has since exhibited and maintained an active life within the Melbourne arts community, volunteering at both Trocadero and Seventh gallery.

Lucrecia is employed by SisterWorks, a non-profit organization in partnership with UN Women. For the UN Women initiative at SisterWorks, she has been building, designing, and illustrating a new learning platform for migrant women in Australia.

Lucrecia is now also part of Migrant Women in Business. She brings unique experience in understanding the role that art plays in the literacy journey of migrant women.
