ARTISTIC MISSION & STATEMENT
As a Latiné artist in America today, my art is my resistance, my action, my voice. I am constantly asking myself: what does it mean to create art right now? How does the work I create inspire the conversations necessary to our growth? How can I use my voice as an artist to amplify others? These questions have led me to solidify my artistic mission to a few core principals:
