I see her being more like her dad in a way like in the sense that she looked like him a little bit. Everyone would tell me that she looked more like the mom, but you know drawing her out we definitely get to see who she, reminded you of more, but she definitely had the spirit of the mom, and that essence, just who she was.

Albert “Tino” Ortega’s Artist Statement

The subject matter of Jailah Nicole Silguero mural was selected in part for the similarities with my own daughter. The process of creating the portrait was done in collaboration with Jailah’s family to celebrate her likes and interests. The halo and glowing light represent a sense of passing and purity.   

Her family was able to partake in the creation of the mural in hopes to bring a feeling of inclusion in the memorial of their daughter and sister.
