About the Process

I'm inspired by social political issues and often times its whimsical and I like to use acrylic paint, aerosol paint and water color in my paintings and murals. Pre-Covid my mural process included community involvement from concept to actually painting the mural together to instill a sense of belonging and ownership through art. I also enjoy the processes of print making and telling the stories of my Latinx culture and of my surrounding South Tucson neighborhood.
