After studying and eventually receiving her BFA and MA from the University of the Arts, her work focuses on views of America through satire. She likes for her work to show the vulnerable side of every human being, and expose it. “Fictional Memoirs” gives the viewer the power of interpreting the works and giving them their own personal meaning. Just as memories are all unique and never identical to anyone else’s, so is that of the interpretation of an artwork.

Also important and notable is Surrena’s choice of media. She employs assemblage in order to create these snapshots of everyday life and memories, rather than more traditional media like paint or ink. Surrena is inspired by many different sources—magazines, media images, photography—and assemblage gives her the freedom to explore more areas of interest and uses of color. As for the future of Surrena’s art, she says, “the future of my work is open. I enjoy experimenting with different mediums and problem solving,” which is evident in her “Fictional Memoirs” series.
