Ethel Zafranco

Mrs. Ethel
A daughter of immigrant parents, Ethel spent a majority of her youth in an underserved community. She was fortunate enough to be placed into a program that gave youth a platform to express themselves creatively through arts and crafts, theater, photo and film and even being in nature. This influenced her interest in art. She studied fine art in high school and received her BA in multimedia arts from LMU.
