Since 1996, Maya has been providing presentations to children and educators about the power of reflection in our children’s media and the importance of creativity as a tool for personal empowerment. She has witnessed remarkable experiences in classrooms and auditoriums around the country. Through her work with educators and children, she, together with her husband Matthew, cofounded Reflecion Press. The mission and goals of Reflection Press have been a vision of Maya's for quite some time and are now finally coming to fruition.
Maya grew up in the Mojave Desert in Southern California during times when virtually no imagery existed that reflected her experience as a biracial, Chicana. Throughout her life she used creativity as a tool to find, explore, and know herself. Her art is featured in many art books including on the cover of Living Chicana Theory and Contemporary Chicano/a Art.
