Born in Whittier, California, but living most of her life in the city of Guadalajara, Mexico, she begins her studies at Instituto Cultural Cabañas and several workshops in the city, later completing a degree in Fine Arts from the University of Guadalajara. She has presented her work in places like the Foro de Arte y Cultura, El Centro de Arte Contemporáneo, the Regional Museum of Guadalajara and Aguascalientes, as well as Casa Museo López Portillo.
Description of my work…
Surrounded by an oriental aesthetic from early age, as well as a love for pop culture, she interprets the world with a certain irony. All seems peaceful but at the same time bittersweet and tragic. The colors and shapes remind us of childhood. Her characters, whether children, animals, geishas, monsters or sumo wrestlers come out of their natural surroundings, into a much surreal one. The work originates from the yearning of childhood and innocence where nature shows it’s charming side as well as it’s cruelty, all topped with a spoonful of sugar to make it all better.
