Being a second generation in the United States, I have come across several obstacles that molded me into the artist I proudly am today. Inculcated by my parents’ cultural values, catholicism, and traditions, have strongly impacted my art practice. In the Spring of 2017, I achieved the degree of MASTER OF FINE ART in Sculpture, at San Francisco State University, San Francisco, California.
My practice is Interdisciplinary, including drawing, painting, sculpture, installation, photography, video projections, and performance. I approach medium and materials according to their formal and conceptual significance. Currently, it is crucial to me that the materials I select be ones that trigger memories of my past. The acts of making, cutting, twisting, tearing, wrapping, heating, burning, and/or banging provide me with a sense of healing and acceptance: These labor intensive acts that could be associated with violence or even torture have allowed many of those brief past memories, which had faded away, to awaken.
