Stephanie Concepcion Ramirez is a Salvadoran-American artist from Prince George's County, Maryland. She received her BFA at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA and her MFA at the University of Texas at Austin. Her work is based on notions of memory, personal and historical amnesia that trace the veins of the Central American diaspora. In an attempt to fill gaps within her personal history she creates images, installations and writings that validate truth, false memories, filtered history and fantasy. Ramirez currently works and lives in Austin, Texas.
