Aurora Contreras

Photography – Milwaukee

I've been raised in many geographic locations in the United States. I was born in Kenosha, WI in 1981. Texas and Minnesota have been considered home. I attended schools within Progreso, TX and the Kenosha Unified School district. I have a strong background in visual communications, business, and political science. My undergraduate studies include the Visual Communications program at North Metro Technical College in Acworth, GA. Further studies include a major in Digital Arts with a concentration in 3D Animation and a Political Science minor at the University of Wisconsin Parkside in Kenosha, WI. I'm owner of Estudio Aurora, which is located at the Racine Business Center in Racine, WI. My business focuses on fine art and multimedia design. Photography is one important facet of my company. I find it important to be surrounded by other artists and business owners. Becoming involved with local community events is important to me. I'm currently involved with Fusion, Fine Arts Fund Executive Committee within the Kenosha Community Foundation, Get Behind the Arts, and ExposeKenosha. I come from a large family. Family and tradition are important to me.
