Artist Statement

It has been my mission to explore my own Mexican culture and heritage into my artworks. For many of my artworks I focus on a different aspect of my heritage that makes me who I am. Focusing on the human figure allows me to explore munipulation of the body in relationship to its background and the materials I am using. I can also explore how the media I am using can connect the figure to a deeper personal meaning. In my mixed media studies I use imagery of the Virgin of Guadalupe as a symbol of my heritage.

I focus on abstracting the human figure to connect humanity into different aspects that make us human. Whether its our relationship with time, food, or the afterlife. I think that art is a way to have control and explore ones identity and personal realtionships.

It is my personal joy to teach others and grow myself as an artist. I hope to encourage others to explore individual styles, embrace where one comes from, and unlock creativity in every part of life.
