Artist Statement/About


Artist Statement

My art and photography are inspired by the transformation of movement into a memory, images that live in us for decades.  Some of the best memories in my soul are those that I never lived-my prehispanic past.  Paths that I don't know are there floating above my memory.  Places that I discover in this real life are here, all together, full of folklore, in my psyche.  All of those faces, flavors and smells are so deeply familiar and reflect the diversity of many worlds. 

My world began in México, México, México-In Nahautl, one of the many dialects spoken, means the umbilical cord of the moon.

I have always made art from discarded materials, found materials, recycled materials--I tend to see much more in materials in the street than in a store, they already have a story, which adds so much to mine.
