My art reflects my journey as a self-taught, first-generation Mexican American artist from Los Angeles, California. Drawing inspiration from a diverse community of artists, I learned to be vulnerable and access my creativity. My approach to art is raw and intuitive, guided by feelings and textures rather than preconceived notions. I surrender to the canvas, giving voice to my soul through colors, textures, and lines. This process creates a profound connection between me and the artwork.
Using acrylic and oil pastels on canvas, I explore the interplay of color, shape, and markings to achieve emotive expressions. My work is characterized by a contrasting pictorial structure, often composed of squares and rectangles, that convey a visual unity. In engaging with my art, I encourage viewers to contemplate and connect with their own emotions and experiences.
