Artist's Statement:

As a multidisciplinary, self-taught artist. My mission as an artist is to awaken the spirituality in the Human mind through an approach that utilizes the arts to emphasize a connection between nature and today's modern society. Drawing on cultural narratives of Mexican indigenous traditional art, my art connects humans with nature and spirituality in modern society. My artwork is my self-expression about my own experiences. As someone who did not have the privilege to attend art school.

Summary:

I have over fifteen years of experience in community-building through popular arts in education among diverse populations in Philadelphia. I speak both English and Spanish fluently and have worked in international and multicultural settings, which have deepened my respect for diversity. I am independent and take initiative as a self-starter, as well as someone who loves to collaborate and learn from people. I have developed very strong communication and interpersonal skills through many years as a teaching artist. Most of my work has been in underprivileged communities through after-school programs, senior centers, juvenile correction centers, and work with high-risk middle and high school students. I also have experience in community organizing and nonprofit management throughout the city of Philadelphia and have given workshops and public talks to teachers and nonprofits about cultural diversity and identity. I am known for professional and personal integrity in my work and try to stand up for what is right even in the face of severe adversity. In 2003, I co-founded the Aztec cultural organization and dance troupe Ollin Yoliztli Calmecac (OYC).
