Cienega’s RL artwork runs through many mediums; Oil and acrylics, sculpting with metal and wood on a large scale. Soft Leather and feather work mixed with glass, and her stained glass work.
Cienega's reason for not bringing her RL work to the grid, is her view of the differences of each environment. She sees a special beauty in Second Life® and believes it should be celebrated in its environment without her RL stuff hanging around in an unnatural view.
Cienega Soon's Second Life® became exciting after she discovered the snapshot feature at the bottom of the screen in June of 2007. Experimenting with her newly purchased PScs2 program launched her Second Life® career.

Rancor is my most important piece so far. I have a need to convey the pain of betrayal.
Walk through Rancor ... there is a small moment of a break through when you walk into love.
I hope you enjoy my carnival of displays and the pieces I have included. You will find many for L$50.
Thank you for coming
