Easily my favorite part of Rancho Relaxo is our dressing rooms painted by Coachella Valley native artist Sofia Enriquez. Sofia’s work celebrates femininity with bold iconography that weaves a story. Every day this story unfolds in deeper, more nuanced layers for me. Every day I notice a new detail, a deliberate drip or a playful juxtaposition of color.
Over the course of 13 hours, on November 23, 2019, just a week after we opened our doors, a rising star shared her brilliance with me and my space. Although her work has a fanciful and fantastic quality, her work style was anything but. Every drip and bold brush stroke was applied with the precision of a samurai.
Sofia’s use of color is particularly captivating and speaks to the exploration of cultural identity woven throughout her work.
