Hever Leticia Lopez Castañeda was born on 17 August 1985 in Cuernavaca, Morelos. As a result of infantile cerebral palsy, she cannot use her arms or legs. Even as a small girl, she noticed that she had difficulties using her hands, and started to use her mouth to help her. Around the age of 10, she did her first drawings with her mouth. Drawing and painting proved to be very arduous to her to start with, due to the disability, however, over the course of time, this activity became easier. At the time she dedicated herself exclusively to acrylic painting. Since November 2009, Hever Leticia Lopez Castañeda has been taking private art lessons with master Horacio. He is currently teaching her about oil painting.
