Artist Statement: Growing a Migrant Farmworker toiling the fields of distant states like Wyoming, California, Wisconsin, Utah, and Texas allowed me to see and understand the world of a working class family, it allowed me to form views of likes and dislikes of the United States, and it helped me gain strength and creative abilities to paint a world of narratives about a lifestyle not wished upon others in a time when discrimination was rampant.
