About Us –
A Women-Owned and Operated Virtual Art Gallery LLC is owned and operated by a team of dedicated women based in San Francisco, California. We offer consumers the largest online selection of fine arts and crafts created by women.

Our mission is to create a renaissance for women artists-to open the doors to full economic participation and professional acknowledgement both in the art world and in society at large.

We believe that the time is now for women artists, many of whom have traditionally confronted a "gallery gap." Less than 1% of traditional gallery space feature women artists (Guerrilla Girls West). closes the gallery gap by providing women artists affordable and easy access to art buyers, enthusiasts, and savvy shoppers. Our staff is inspired each day by the vision and determination of the artists we serve. Our goal is to share that inspiration with the public by making the work of these fine artists available for all to enjoy. Management Team

Our leadership team, profiled below, represents a broad spectrum of professional business and artistic experience.

Ces Rosales, Founder and President came about when Ces was brainstorming with an artist friend to find a way to showcase artistic works of women that do not have the means to do so in the traditional art world. The concept of the world wide web became extremely attractive. It is a place where women's art can be presented, be seen and be appreciated around the world at a very affordable cost. It is the gallery with no walls.

While it allows women artists the space to put on their exhibit, it likewise allows aficionados of women's art access to these artworks that are not easily seen or readily available anywhere else.

Ces brings a wealth of experience in starting up and building a business from the gound up. She is the founder of ZesTop, a graphics design firm based in San Francisco.
