This art project aims to capture representative elements of this beautiful Church "Before it’s Forgotten..."

Fabiola Martinez Rodriguez was born in Mexico City and grew up in the City of Santiago de Querétaro.She is an Architect from the Instituto Tecnologico de Querétaro and she moved to Saint John New Brunswick several years ago, where she got married and raised two children, considering Mexico and Canada as her home.

To Fabiola, architecture is the silent witness to life unfolding. It’s not just about the buildings, though they show the culture, it’s about the life that is around them, within them and growing beneath them. Using the cochineal from her homeland for its vibrant red colour, Fabiola incorporates nature into each piece and with it, she brings part of her heritage to the canvas.
Fabiola’s work has been exhibited in art centers, galleries and universities in the provinces of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia as well as the city of Vancouver, the Lancaster Museum of Art and History in California, The New Brunswick Museum and Lotton Gellery in Chicago. in Mexico, her work has been exhibited at the Cineteatro Rosalio Solano in her hometown.
