Cecilia Vázquez was born and raised in Mexico City. She attended the National University of Mexico, where she completed her BFA. Later on, she earned her MFA in Painting from Massachusetts College of Art in Boston, thanks to the support of a Fulbright grant. 

She exhibits her work regularly—both in Mexico and abroad—in museums, cultural institutions, and private galleries. Her sustained practice has granted her a position in the Mexican art-world, having been distinguished three times with the National System of Creators Grant by the National Fund for Culture and Arts (FONCA). She is also part of the Fulbright-García Robles Experts Network, and participates regularly as a jury member for national and international competitions and grants. 

She has taught at college level in Mexico, the US and Argentina, and has served as a Visiting Artist in several institutions in Mexico and the US. She was a Tenured Full Professor in the State University of Morelos in Mexico, where she also headed the MFA Maestría en Producción Artística, accredited by the National Register of Quality Graduate Programs. She has also been a Mentor in the Young Creator’s Program (FONCA). Currently, she is a Tenured Associate Professor at Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston, MA, where she is also Chair for the 2D Department, and 2D MFA Program Director. 

Two monographs on her work have been published: Fondo, figura y fondo otra vez and Geometría blanda.

Her work is included in public and private collections in Mexico and abroad.
