May 3 – July 27, 2012 at the Vincent Price Art Museum
I was born in Los Angeles, CA, received my BA in International Relations and traveled. I decided to then become a teacher to be a positive impact in children’s lives and then I continued to work with youth on a part time basis in order to create my art. The diverse color combinations of artisan works from El Salvador,
Mexico, and Guatemala is a jumping point in my work and matrilineal family on my mother’s side inspires my work to have women as the central figure and elements of a piece. My work is also inspired by the line work in textile designs. The media I create work with include photography, performance, set design, and film.
The painting “LA: reimagined” is a painting that imagines an LA where plants, animals, homes, rivers, people, highways, peace and harmony are located.
