Statement

Through the fluctuating mixed media of drawing, painting, installation and photography I create art that retains a cultural translation of experience and sentiment.

Visions of perpetuated femininity and the distorted social roles of the modern woman.

A series of multifaceted and contradictory autobiographies played out by various characters.

I grew up on the lower east side of Manhattan during a time where the Latino community was waning and a new bourgeoisie syndicate was (quickly) burgeoning.

My work continues to reflect my polysemic socio-cultural connection to New York.
