She was born in...
San Juan, PR and grew up in Georgia and South Carolina. She attended Columbia College Chicago where she received her BA in filmmaking. She produced and directed a documentary, Numu Tekwa, Speak Comanche. It's based on the Comanche Tribe and Language Preservation committee’s efforts to preserve their language and culture. She later received a MFA from the University of Illinois at Chicago where she produced and directed films titled, My World Will Be All Right and aMBitIOn.
After graduate school, she focused her time with abstract paintings. She organized and created pop up exhibitions a couple times a year throughout Chicago. Her current work goes beyond abstract and touches on two-dimensional portraits. Her method is to convey the expression of her thoughts. Her art are paintings, they are films and they are any medium that expresses her thoughts. Her goal is to create works of art that conveys a specific story or thought that she holds dear to her heart. She uses a visual language by focusing on imagery, color and placement to communicate that narrative.
I want to create works of art that express and focus in a language by using imagery to convey a poignant story. It's the representation of what I want you to see, the thoughts that I feel and to be able to produce works of art that have yet seen.
