I use many different mediums, aerosol, acrylics, sharpie ink,and pastels. I believe that working in a single medium is restrictive to my artistic process. Each idea manifests in its own individual style.
I enjoy gardening in my spare time and many of my pieces are directly influenced by nature. I am interested in learning nahuatl cosmology. My work reflects indigenous iconography and contemporary images.
