My paintings explore supernatural spaces inhabited by mythical creatures, transformative beings, spirits, and ancestors who take on various forms, including parts of animals, humans, figurative shapes, and elements of nature. Each character and scene offers a glimpse into their stories and worlds while still rooted in reality. My inspiration derives from my dreams, visions, life experiences, and the environments of my southern Colorado and New Mexico homelands. I am also influenced by my mixed Nuevomexicano and Indigenous Genízaro heritage which has a complex history of colonization, integration, and slavery. I use my art as an instrument of healing, resilience, and awareness as I honor, explore, and reflect on the diverse connections of my past. I focus on creating new narratives that are symbolic and imaginative and expand on the relationship between nature and humans, showing how we are all connected in the physical and invisible worlds around and within us. The symbolism of movement and change is important in my work and is seen in the shapes and forms that flow, swirl, and unite through layered textures, bold colors, and saturated effects. I use various materials, such as acrylic, oil, spray paint, airbrush, ink, and digital painting, on paper, wood panels, canvas, and leather.
