About Azucena Hernandez
Azucena Hernandez was born and raised in the Mission District of San Francisco, California. Inspired by the vibrant murals, festive parades and rich culture that surrounded her childhood, she always knew she wanted to become an artist. Using the traditional, yet not as well known practice of pyrography, she creates striking photorealistic portraits. Many artists balance their passion with a day job and Azucena has managed to blend them. She has worked in the funeral industry for more than 7 years. In that time, she has been honored to create many memorial portraits for grieving families. Memorial portraits have become one of her favorite works to create.
