Upon her graduation from the University of the Pacific, she created Leaders of Civil Liberties, a print series in which she carved images of civil liberties leaders such as Martin Luther King Jr., Cesar Chavez, President Barack Obama and others, and printed them.
“I look[ed] to other heroes as I was searching for a father figure as a child…” explained Gutierrez. She found inspiration in national heroes, as they work from the heart and mirror her dual heritage — she describes herself as “Afro-Latina.” Gutierrez’s inspiration has motivated her to graduate while working and raising her two children as a single mother.
At her young age, Gutierrez has a strong history of advocacy for the arts and education. She was Stockton Arts Commissioner and presently serves as Board Member at the Mexican Heritage Center and Gallery. Her passion for working with children opened the door for her to work at San Joaquin’s Micke Grove Zoo. At the Zoo she headed the Zoofari Summer Camp teaching children about animals, ecology, and conservation; an educational experience she is now furthering to become a teacher. “I am working on my Master’s and hope to become a teacher in the future,” remarked Guitierrez.

They’ve been searching for a solution to the Delta’s problems for decades. It’s what I call the phenomena of endless studies no results. We know what we have to do.
