Artist Statement:

 

As a Mexican woman living in New York City, I feel it is my responsibility to open up a dialogue about immigrants. My work intends to bring Latinx life into contemporary art by celebrating the culture and highlighting family values. The narrative shows interior domestic scenes surrounding tables.

Bright colors and decorative patterns are very characteristic of my works; in my oil paintings, portraits are always in the foreground and close to the viewer. Intense brushwork provides unique character combined with flat backgrounds to highlight emotion.
