Alma de la Serra, b. 1972, Vilanova i la Geltru, Barcelona, Spain. After earning a degree in Mathematics at the Polytechnic University of Valencia, Valencia, Spain, de la Serra worked as a school teacher for several years, during which time she also began painting free-form abstractions based on topological manifolds, to which she eventually added appropriated images and computer graphics.

Through her uncle J.T. Pescador, better known by his stage name Ignotus the Mage, she became of a member of the Ignostudio artists cooperative. De la Serra collaborated in 1995 with artist Paul Hertz to produce the digital image series Deadpan, or, the Holy Toast, which has been exhibited internationally. She struck out on her own with the photographic series Situations, which has been exhibited at the Dittmar Gallery and the Block Museum, at Northwestern University. Her digital collage from 2000, Linkages, has been accepted for this year's Art Gallery at the prestigious ACM SIGGRAPH Conference.

A number of de la Serra's works are on display during the month of April, 2007, at the Unicorn Cafe, Evanston, Illinois. A list of prices is available here.
