About the Artist

I am a first-generation immigrant artist currently working and residing in Austin, TX. My studies are in painting and drawing and I've received a BFA from Stephen F. Austin State University in East Texas. Growing up on both sides of the Rio Grande, I've taken in my immediate cultural surroundings as raw material to create a unique style and vision that mirrors my multicultural experience. Accepting art as a life path has led me to look outside of academia, and other institutional systems of learning. I am currently focused on the folk art of today and other folkloric traditions within my environment.

Artist Statement

My aim is to create a new dance that revels in beauty and basks in the light of questions that will never be answered. I am fascinated with folklore and ancient myths, as they serve as a basis for subject matter and contemplation. I do not limit myself to a specific medium or craft, but my main focus tends to be with painting and color. Healing with color is of particular interest in my work.
