In my artistic journey, I utilize painting, photography, and interactive community projects to explore personal narratives, collective histories, and the poetic relationship between nature and humanity.
 Guided by this inspiration, and working from my own relationship to colonization as a first-generation queer person, I craft animist visions of growth in marginal spaces, asserting that there is no single, clear, defined way to be. 
My approach to art making is influenced by Rasquachismo, a Chicano art movement that embodies resistance and resilience in the face of adversity, as well as Ma, a Japanese concept that refers to the space of interval between things.
